Are these gauges good?

Has anybody ever used these gauges?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/370744287211...84.m1423.l2649

The kit is about 100 bucks cheaper than most other kits but I like it because it has the same stock green color that the truck has. So I just wanted to be sure no one has had any bad experiences with these specific gauges.

My other concern is that the boost gauge is electric and not mechanical. Is that a problem?

Thanks for your time!

Just get some isspro or factory match autometers instead of spending and wasteing money on cheapies. Youll save in the long run.

Re: Are these gauges good?

Gauges are used for monitoring vital engine information. Without them, you have no idea where everything stands. With cheap/ inaccurate gauges you will have a general idea... but why not spend a little more and have an accurate gauge so you know EXACTLY what your parameters are.

Good advice. I have 5 isspro's and I don't regret spending as much as I did. They are great gauges.
