Re: gauges ?

Its a matter of personnel preference. I prefer my insight CTS because of the ability to monitor things such as IPR, pulsewidth, and back pressure when ever I want. But don't be fooled by the intro price of a digital monitor. By the time you add in the extra sensors required your over 700$. A digital monitor is also not as reliable as a set of isspro gauges. Like I said personel preference.

Re: gauges ?

I have run both analog and digital gauges. I am currently running a digital gauge and would not even think of going back to analog. Analog gauges are extremely limited and serve only the purpose of watching 1 parameter. Most digital gauges will watch at least 20 different parameters and read/clear codes.

A unit like our Infinity has the ability to watch hundreds of parameters, read/clear codes, datalog, run diagnostic tests, tune, play media, and more.

Re: gauges ?

I prefer gauges over an all in one display. All in one's are easy to steal, easy to break, rely on the PCM for there communication and are harder to read at a glance.

I don't even have to read my gauges to know where they are at. Just out of the corner of my eye I can tell what EGT's, Trans and other temps or pressures are.

There is a reason why even airplanes still use an analog display.
