Performax is the top of the line gauge from ISSPRO, but you could get the same brilliance of illumination from the EV2 line. Both EV2 and Performax are stepper motor heads with LED illumination, both come in White Face, Blue Illumination and the chrome bezel

If you need more help on the subject just ask

Go to Isspro.com and look at the gauge styles... You can get a perfect match in both the EV-2 and the Performax line...

You can also add LED's to your gauges you have now and they will really brighten them up...


First pic is your gauges with LED's, Second is with normal bulb...

and the third one is just for fun... 17 Performax gauges...

Wll if i could add LED's like you said and brighten them up like yours it would really help, but i thought the EV already came with LED bulbs

Where can i get the bulbs, Isspro? I also want to get a 4 gauge pod and get a fuel pressure gague do they have one in the EV series?
Thanks

The blue LEDs for the existing EV series (which comes with regular incandescent bulbs) are here:
ISSPRO Product Categories - need two of these each for trans temp & pyro

ISSPRO Product Categories - need one of these for boost.

I would opt for an EVē electric fuel pressure gauge. We have mechanical in the EV series, but then you have to mess around with the isolator. The EVē and Performax series are all LED backlit.

Thanks. I definately will get the LED's.
Im still debating on getting rid of my Ev's and upgrading to 7 Performax gauges, look like some really nice gauges
What would be a good combo of 7 to run? Of course Boost, Pyro, Tranny, and Fuel Pressure are a definate. Would put those 4 on a pillar mount. What would be a good combo for the other 3? I was thinkin HPOP pressure and 2 others??
