Gauges on a budget

I have been looking at getting a set of gauges for a while now, I plan on getting a 35psi boost gauge, EGT, and trans temp. Was wondering if anybody knew where I could get decent ones without blowing a whole lot of money?

We can get you setup with an Autometer kit. PM or e-mail me if you are interested and I will get you some prices.

Re: Gauges on a budget

places like rpm outlet dot com have 3 gauges(autometer) and a pillar pod for under $300. That's about as cheap as I have seen them.

Re: Gauges on a budget

A completely different option is going with a Quadzilla Recon XZT. I've had one for about 5 years now and have been more than happy with it. It has its limits (only see one guage/function at a time) but it does a good job. I really only need to see the boost and tranny temp occasionally so I keep it on EGT setting 99% of the time. Picked mine up on great sale for about $150 if I remember correctly. I like that its real small and doesn't clutter up my dash or pillars.

If you are open to digital gauges, we have the Infinity available. It will also tune, datalog, run tests(KOEO/KOER, buzz, cylinder contribution, glow plug), and much more. It is the most advanced product of it's kind available. Check it out HERE.

Re: Gauges on a budget

No Glow Shifts.....HATE MINE!!!!! I'd recomend a boost that goes over 45 psi. Since the new Gen II Billet Wicked Wheels from Bob @Dieselsite are making big boost numbers. My stock turbo hits 31 psi with a massive leak all around the #8 cylinder and a up pipe.
