Transmission temp gauge

So I'm looking at getting a tranny gauge and am wanting any tips or personal experiences with the different brands of gauges. I want a reliable one but I don't want to break the bank.
I eventually plan on getting the basic gauges(tranny temp, boost and EGT) but I want to start with the transmission gauge first. Also should I go with a 3 slot A-column mount or do one of the 3in1 gauges? What has worked good for y'all in terms of reliability and ease of reading the gauges at night/day?

I like single gauges in a pillar pod set up. It looks good and is out of the way.

Isspro gauges are one of the best, not my money but I would not go with anything else. There are a lot of other companies that are cheaper but cheaper usually compromises quality.

ISSPROs over anything. I have installed two kits from Diesel Manor (site sponsor) and I love them.

Isspro... You have many choices in pods, A pillar is always a fav but there is the overhead pod and the underdash one. If you want pictures just let me know, I have them all installed.

Love all the gauges. Get ISSPRO EV2. Awesome gauges. Especially the one that says you have 46 psi of boost heading into a brick wall.

You have the holy grail of monitoring gauges lol. Thanks for the pictures. Was running the wires for the one above the mirror a pain? Because I really like the way that one looked. Also where did you get it from?
Edit: what colors do you recommend for best visibility?

Its called Peak Recall, its avalable (standard) with the Performax line of Isspro gauges. Press a button and all the gauges installed go to there previously recorded Max (minus Fuel pressure and HPO Pressure, they go to min). Press it again and your back to normal. Hold it down for 3 seconds and it clears the ESP (Electronic signal processor)...

Its not hard at all to install the overhead pod, its one of the best IMHO. the wires just tuck in above the headliner. No removing anything other then the A-Pillar which is very easy.

You can get the gauges and pillars from any vendor of your choice. PM me if you want some good ones.
