Gauge and pod advice

I was thinking of putting an A pillar 3 gauge pod in my truck and was wondering which pods were of good quality for fit and finish? I was thinking of autometer gauges; boost gauge, pyro and a trans temp (since I tow). I have white faced gauges in my dash and would prob match the aux gauges the same. let me know what you think.

are you looking for digital or mechanical? autometer seems to be pretty good and what i was going to get for my previous vehicle.

do you also have some sort of scanner or device (sorry mind isn't working correct for name) that you can also watch other things such as ECT EOT fuel pressure, etc?

I've never installed mechanical gauges before. Are they difficult to do?

Another option would to get a Dashdaq without the Spartan tunes. It will provide I think up to 9 gauges at once. No need to install extra gauges. Just plug into your OB2 port. You can do that while running H&S tunes.

Don't know if it's old school or not but I prefer the analog style gauges. I'll still udilize the mini max for other monitoring also.
