good set of gauges?

so i know there are quite a few threads about gauges already but i didnt want to hijack anybodys thread so ill just start my own.

I was wanting to know everyones opinion on a particular set of gauges i found.
The brand name is Glow Shift performance gauges and an ebay company is offering a set of 4 (boost, EGT, Trans, Fuel pressure) with a gauge pod and all the hardware to install everything for $250...

Most full kits i find like these are no less than $400 so i wanted to know if anybody is using these particular gauges or have any experience with them.

the ebay URL is
99 07 Ford Super Duty Powerstroke Tan Quad Pod 4 White 7 Diesel Gauges | eBay

Let me know what you guys think.

They are junk.

I've had them for 2 years.

My EGT is intermittent and the trans temp gauge hasn't worked in 8 months.

I contacted their customer support numerous times and they were all but helpful.

Go ahead and get some good isspro's or autometers. I will be buying isspro's next.

+1 on them being junk.
I've never owned them, but I've read enough crap about them to guaranty that I wouldn't even accept a set for free.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I have the Autometer Ford factory matched and they are worth the money! I haven't had a single problem with them and the only thing that I had to buy was wire for my power and ground wires and ends for the wires to slide onto the gauges.

+1 on the Glow Shifts being junk, haven't had a set but haven't heard a good thing about them yet!

Does the 7.3 support an all in one electronic gage cluster? I'm talking about the Edge or Bully Dog, Banks type gauge display. I see a lot of separate gauges on the column and thought why not an electric display? Can you run a DP tune and have a electric display?

Thanks

IMO Isspro's are the best available..what we sell. I've had autometers but IMO they just don't look as nice and their wiring kits just are not as good as Isspro's

Can you use a display with a chip..yes but will cost more and if it fails..unlike seprate guages its a lot more expensive to replace.

I like the autometer guages, especially the new elite series. I have the autometer nexus guages but they are now discontinued. I can set warnings, peak recall, and data log with mine. Can't do that with isspro.
However isspro has more selection of individual guages if you want a bunch

Been there done that / x 10 on junk. Save some $ upfront but it comes with poor customer service , and a poor product. If you have a souped up Neon with a big whale tail fin on the back then they are a perfect fit.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
