I don't know Jim. Havn't heard much of them. IMO i'd stick to a known brand until they can make a name for themselves. would hate to do things twice.

Auto Meter

VDO Too.

MY room mater got these the are cool but the one he bought for his rpm's is kinda hit or miss. but the water one is ok.
if it comes with all the Pyrometer and instructions on how to mount and hardwear. i would try it and how many gauges are you going to end up with.

if it is 2 or more buy the 3 pod gauge pillar cover.

I don't know this one is at a good price............but it could be junk. Hmmmm can't afford extra $200 from a brand name for 1 gauge. I need to find a commander for a good price! Can't find one though damn you ebay!!!:rant:

If you buy mechanical gauges - if you pay more then 300 for the name brands you're a bit off.

My friend bought some "off brand" gauges... and it didn't come with a complete kit... luckily I had installed about 10 sets of gauges and had spares laying around that we were able to use.

I would stick with the gauge companies that we know come 100% complete...like Isspro, Autometer, VDO, ETC. As I have found out recently you get what you pay for!

Usually $200 for the pyrometer (Brand Name) and usually $60 for the trans temp and $70 for the boost gauge. I said it would be $200 for 1 pyrometer, not for all of them.

You can get a triple ISSPRO set up for about $300 with a pod....just FYI.
