Gauges??

I'm wanting to buy gauges for my 06, and i'm wanting opinions. Who has the best gauges? who has the best price?? Any ideas? I want a Boost gauge, Pyro, ECT, EOT and maybe a Tranny. I dont want to spend a arm and a leg but i would like some that have a good rep and work well.

Thanks in advance!

I love my autometers but since you're wanting all of those gauges personally I would go with an edge cts.

I just installed a set of Isspro gauges from Diesel Manor. I love how they look and how easy everything installed. They match all of my stock ford gauges and Diesel Manor's step by step installation booklet was amazing. Nothing against Autometer...I have all Autometer gauges in my 65 Mustang and I love them, however, I was very impressed how the Isspro gauges looked and how close they matched my 02 F250 SD 7.3L.

Glowshift gauges have a 3 in 1 60mm gauge. Runs about $170. Very cost effective and they look and work great. I have one in my 02.

I went to the website and they have a 3 in 1 guage that is simple and not overwhelming!!! I will probably go in this direction... BD X-Monitor...
