    that was kinda my oppion on gauges, if they show something at least, it'll be fine, but after further thinking. I think a proper readout, showing me exactly what each parameter is, would be better than a "rough idea"

    Thats why i'm going with a Full AEM Digital fleet. I should be able to use them again on my next project which is a big bonus

    It might be worth a shot to check out VEI systems. They have some pretty awesome dual function gauges and some custom stuff as well. I've heard nothing but good things about them from BMW people and I'm going to be buying one of their gauges pretty soon.

    Edit: I've also heard good things about PLX and their multi-function gauges

    There alright, used the oil filter adapter to install the temp and psi had trouble with it at the start would say I was running 80 psi but it decided to fix itself, and runaround 60, overall not bad for the price

    I would either go with AEM or VDO, AEM have really nice electronic gauges, and VDO is where its at for cheap and reliable, many cars use VDO as the factory gauge cluster components. I believe its the older VW MK1 GTI that actually has a triple gauge pod with VDO gauges from the factory too.

    The VDO gauges for the Helios were about $60 each
