Re: best gauges

I had them in my truck and as far as I can tell they were as accurate at my autometers. I like the autometers better, The Z Series is a good cheap autometer series to get into.

Re: best gauges

I havent had any problems with mine. I run the tinted 7 color series, and I love them. They come with hoods in case you feel the sun glare will be too much, but I dont use them, and can see just fine. Their green theme matches perfect with the stock gauges, so thats what I use.

I have the EGT, Fuel Press, and Trans Temp, and havent had any issues, with one exception... My fuel pressue gauge every now and then will go wierd on me. It will tap out to 100 pounds, then when I throttle down, it will waver a little bit at 70, WOT normal PSI. No biggy, has only done it a couple of times, and Im sure its a ground issue.

I say buy the GS gauges, and dont look back. 06POWERSTROKE helped install mine, and he said they are as good of quality as his autometers.

Re: best gauges

Glow Shifts are good, thats what im running. Ive only had one problem but since they are under a 1 yr warranty it go replaced. But def a good purchase and you cannot beat the price.

But as for the BEST guages...id say ISSPRO, but you are gonna spend half of that youve made over there on the guages

Re: best gauges

Glowshift=Cheap Ebay crap!

Tiny EGT probes and the fittings suck. Wouldn't touch them with a 10 ft. pole!

Isspro EV2 are top of the line but they aren't the best looking IMO.

I really like the Diprocol but they are out of business...

Autometer Ultra-lite are very high quality and good looking.
