They are a basic starter set. Will work, have a cool appearance and will save you alot of cash. Are they the best - no. Will they work - yes.

Agreed. you can get a 3 pack with piller pod for cheap on ebay. But they are not the best by far

You get what you pay for. They are cheap for a reason. The best bang for your buck in an engine monitoring solution is the Edge Insight. That 1 display can show anything that the computer monitors. Two of the most important things to monitor are ECT & EOT. That is the only way to tell you oil cooler is getting clogged before bad things start happening. The Insight makes that easy.

^^^^ that's where I was headed..
Any of the Edge monitors will work better for cheaper. Edge insight, CS, or CTS.

I have a glow shift fuel pressure gauge and I like it . I don't wanna spend 175 for one gauge I agree they are cheap. I had a problem with mine one time sent it back to glowshift and it was replaced in a week with all new gauges sending unit and wiring. So for little things like that I like them.

I'm also kinda thinking about getting a fuel pressure gauge from them, but I'm afraid the first one won't work, and I suck at wiring so that'd be a major pain in the butt.

I wish I could find a DiPricol Optix Fuel Pressure Gauge.

Once you get it wired the first time your good it has a plug in the back off the gauge so you can take it in and out easy.
