Thumbs up Isspro Gauges

Well i got my isspro gauges for Christmas and was able to install them today. These gauges not only look great but they function very well and very accurately so far. I ordered them from Diesel Manor.com and the sales people there were great, i had them the next day!. Also Diesel Manor sends a very detailed, set of installation instructions in addition to the Isspro Instructions. Ill try to get some pictures up, but just wanted to let you guys know that Diesel Manor was a great company to deal with and the Isspro Gauges seem to be well worth the money, and they cost no more than the Autometer kits. Thanks to my buddy PsdFan99 the install was quick and pretty Straight Forward.

Next will be my Farm Boy's Diesel Exhaust that should be here Tuesday

A pillar came black and i just painted it myself. I wish id known earlier but diesel manor has a paint line as well so you can order the same paint as your interior and spray it yourself when it arrives, i think the paint goes for 19.99 or something like that.....Good luck i love the gauges so far!

Cool deal. I also just got my isspros for Christmas from my girlfriend. Installed them yesterday..OFF THE WALL lol...they are great..I love how they perform and how well they match the factory cluster..its great. I cant believe I have been driving around with my SCT with no gauges..I can only imagine how long and how hot my EGTs have been and ive keep them there. But Diesel Manor is great. they were super cool and the instructions were nice as well..I want to see some pictures of your setup and if you dont mind I will post some up as well

Yup, those Isspro's look sweet for sure, and best of all they work absolutely perfect..... the boost gauge doesn't flutter at all, the needle rises and falls smoothly and flawlessly, AND the tranny temp gauge is very quick to respond and seems to be very accurate so far. My Autometer gauges are nice and all, but my boost gauge sucks, it flutters and the needle doesn't give an accurate reading, and my tranny temp gauge takes FOREVER to respond and is very inaccurate. I have decided that I'm going to go ahead and ditch my Autometers for a new set of Isspro's, the order will be made this week and maybe for once I'll have gauges that read and respond properly. These Isspro's that PJ installed get 2 big thumbs up from me!

It was fairly quick. The most time consuming part of the whole job is basically running all the wires and setting up the pillar and mounting it. Tapping the boost gauge into the MAP line only takes a minute or two, the tranny temp probe only takes a few minutes to install, and drilling and tapping the manifold took me like 30 minutes taking my time very slowly and doing it absolutely perfect. The whole job is overall pretty easy and elementry to do, I would allow 2 hours to do the job, and thats enough time if you were to run into problems or had to read the directions several times.

Jakes right on with the time it took, just make sure you run the wires neatly and safely, dont want anything bad to happen to the electrical due to not paying attention or laziness, but other than that, relatively quick just take your time and think it through. I got the White Gauge, Red Pointer with the black bezel. The kits from isspro come with 2 Aux circuit boxes that have to do with the lighting mechanism, i just mounted the two boxes together on the kick panel behind the e brake, make sure you leave enough room to engage the E-Brake. Ill see if i can get some pictures posted.

Also another piece of advice, when you have the factory pillar off, Get the gauges installed in the a-pillar and run your wires through the factory pillar like it calls for, then i made sure the A-pillar was nice and tight over the factory one, drilled 3 small holes in the appropriate corners and used some small zip ties to hold the a pillar to the factory one which made for a nice tight overlap and easy install. seems stronger than using the push pins included in the kit. but thats just me
