Why are gauges so expensive ?

I need, at the very least, boost, turbo drive pressure and EGT.

I get why EGT is expensive, because there is a bunch of electronics in it. But why are boost gauges so expensive ? Anyone have an alternative ?

Thanks

Given the choice, would you rather have analog gauges or digital gauges ?

Given the choice, would you mount a pressure sender on the engine or run a boost tube right into the cab to measure boost ?

Thanks

glowshift guages if you dnt want to drop a bunch of money on them, i have boost, pyrometer, and fuel pressure, i love them, the Glowshift tinted7 gauges is what i recomend, as long as you do not n***** rig them or halfass the job you will have no problems with them just like mine

I've seen too many posts on bad Glowshift gauges, so I went with ISSPRO EV2s. Very high quality, and they are electronic. Just mount the sensors on the engine, run wires into cab. Much easier than fooling with mechanical lines.

Im going to end up going with a complete digital monitoring system a little bit of a "professional" look imo. Just haven't done much research yet. Probably wont change up my current truck but I will definitely do it when I buy a new one

I love my Dakota Digital gauges. They will also make custom gauges like a HPOP / Fuel pressure gauge I had them make for me

I have the digital gauges and they are horrible. Multiple light have blown, sent them back and it happened again. Now they are unplugged because they are unreadable.

I love my Dakota Digital gauges. They are close to four years old now and they work like I installed them yesterday.
