Isspro gauge whores look here

After 3 years of looking at the same ole gauges, Isspro EV series and the contrasting blue/chrome style im looking for something a bit nicer and that matches the OEM cluster.

I've decided to go with the ISSPRO perfomax line of gauges and am looking at a 4 gauge setup. Other than the obvious 3 what is the 4th most important guage to go with? I see many running a fuel pressure gauge as their 4th but is that really the most important choice after the first 3? Or should i go with a HPOP pressure or something else? My truck is stock injectored and will be for at least the next 2 years which is why i was asking if FP is really what i should be looking at?

Is there a vendor/site that i can get a full 4 gauge package from (all gauges,pod,wiring, everything needed for my setup) i looked at diesel manor but i cant find a package deal like they had for my first gauges i bought from them.

In real world terms what can i expect from these versus my ole EV style gauges? Better lighting? Sharper display? Etc...

And what is the average going rate for a 4 gague setup in the perfomax line?

One of the great things about the Performax line is you can HAVE as many gauges as you can afford, and swap them out in seconds.

For a 4 gauge set up, Boost, Pyro, tranny and fuel pressure...

Then order a exhaust back pressure gauge to have when you want to see whats going on... Or a Oil temp gauge, or a oil pressure gauge...

Once they are connected to the ESP (electronic signal processor) you can swap them out as quick as you can pull a gauge out of the pod and install the new one. No wire changes, no fuss.

You also get the peak recall function, press a button you install somewhere and all the gauges go to there last MAX reading (fuel pressure and HPOP go to there lowest). press and hold that button and the max readings are erased.

You can buy the data logging software very cheap as well which allows you to record, save and playback all the gauges in your ESP.

Re: Isspro gauge whores look here

For the 4th gauge choice, I vote fuel pressure.

FP makes a big difference on even a stock truck. And you will hopefully be able to tell when your stocker is getting worn out, before it actually takes a crap on you while your driving down the road.

Other then the basic three, I would be interested in HPOP, Oil pressure, then fuel pressure myself. If I went with Performax I would probably have a bunch of gauges. If I was going with just the basic three and one more it would be a scan gauge with an add on sensor or two.

Re: Isspro gauge whores look here

My reason for going with the perfomax line is, eventualy I will have a whole slew of gauges, not as much as Joe of course but at least at 7-10. I believe the perfomax line to be my best choice
