Question Insight or Gauges

So what does everybody like? I love my Isspros but would really like to have the Insight. Should I get rid of my gauges for the Insight or keep them and add the Insight. Im just afraid ill miss my gauges. I would love to be able to monitor my coolant and oil temps to.

i like the look of gauges but you cant beat the value of the edge. it monitors darn near everything on the truck and can pull/clear codes.

Personally, I would buy ISSPRO coolant and oil temp. gauges and get the overhead pod or the one that goes on the lower part of the dash. I'm like you, love the look of gauges.

I've got 3 gauges above the rear view, and while one never worked after the install, the 2nd messed up in days, the egt gauge reads fine. It's just that I like the Insight better do to all of the things it reads. I'd have to install a lot more gauges for the same info. In honesty, I just bought the this older Insight from Goose 350 and haven't mounted it. I have only 'played' with it on the way home and around town. I just seem to like it better. I wish one of these would work in my gasburner Lightning. I could then lose the boost and fuel richness gauge.

No question, the Insight hands down. I'd never give mine up.
