glowshift gauges..

bought a triple pillar pod from glowshift with the boost gauge, trans temp gauge, and egt gauge. took all day to install. some of the stupidest designing of a product ive ever seen. had to create 3 wiring harnesses. thank god i had mike (mudrunninpig) with me to help or i would have been lost. i would NOT reccomend anyone else getting these gauges. they are very cheap. but we had fun and i got pictures and they look good.

I have the same gauges, a buddy of mine and me installed the gauges and sensors without having a clue what we were doing and didn't use the instructions and still got it all done without a problem in about 3 or 4 hours

For the price, you can't expect a amazingly great product. But for a college kid on a budget like me, I'm real happy with them!

Looks good though!

I have the 4 gauge pod and had no problem with the install. I agree that there are more quality gauges out there but have had no problems with mine what so ever.

Yeah mine came with the 3 gauge wiring kit. Took about an hour and a half or so. I love mine. I don't regret getting glow shift one bit. The wires are color coded and just super easy to do.

I'm guessing you didnt have glow shifts wiring kit?

Yes i know what you are talking about i installed the A piller in my 97 never again, your gauges looks good my only question where are you going to put the other gauges (EOT-ECT-FP) they are a must on a 6.0 this is the reason i went with the Edge Insight 20min install plug and play with FP in a column pod.

When I first looked at the wiring harness for the gauges I about **** myself, but after glancing at the instructions a few times and having a closer look at the harness, it made a whole hell of a lot more sense
