Isspro ev2 questions

So I just got done installing my isspro ev2 gauge kit from diesel manor and I have a couple of questions. First, the gauges seem to be a bit twitchy, especially the boost gauge. I got boost and pyro, both are electric. Is there some sort of break in period or anything? It seemed to get a bit better once i drove a little. Second, when i shut the truck off the pyro stays at the last temp it was until the truck is started again. Is this normal? Third, the lights on the gauges seem to pulse or flash at night (the lights) unless they are turned all the way up on the gauge dimmer switch. The gauge dimmer switch only uses about a quarter of the knob unitl they go blank (no light) for the last 3/4 of the knob. I have them tapped into the dash dimmer as well and when I dim the dash lights they only dim slightly until they go to this inbetween flash type thing (same this as when i use the gauge dimmer) and then they go blank when the dash keeps on dimming.
Is this normal?
Does it sound like the gauges are bad or the wiring or something? I followed the instructions exactly.
Any and all help appriciated.
Thanks,
Dan

The guages shouldnt be "twitchy" but the do move pretty fluidly. Your setup is just like mine (I too have it tapped into the dash dimmer). Its normal for the pyro to stay where its currently reading as you turn off the truck and start it again later (same for the trans as the units are not recieving power to keep regulating temperature). Once the unit recieves power, youll hear it reset down to the current temp. For example: You turn the truck off and come back 20 minutes later, turn the ignition and youll notice the guage resets down to the minimum and then gives the accurate reading instantly of whatever the cooler temperature at that time is.

If thats confusing, just know that your entire post illustrates everything to be normal.

I just installed the same gauges as you... I did notice the gauges were not glass smooth, they seemed to studder a little bit especially the tranny one. If I used the regular dimmer mine do just like yours. I have the isspro dimmer also so I can dimm them elsewhere if I need.
