Racing Gauges
Hi everyone:
My next mod will be racing gauges, and here I am, asking you guys which ones are better than others, about prices, reliability, etc. ANd why is Autometer a lot less expensive than the others? (is it a crap brand?)
Any help will be good...thx.

go with autometer... they've been around for a lot onger than any other company and because of this, they are a much larger business - so they can offer products for a much less price.

I have AutoMeter gauge in my celi and never a single problem thumbsup

and at night... (same gauges, in a different celi)

Thx for the advice...I'll get the dual gauge pod from Beto, and I was thinking about getting the Volt (for the sound system) and A/F gauges. Any other suggestions on this??
At the moment I just have AEM CAI and TRD exhaust.

the air/fuel gauge is pretty much an eye-candy gauge. By the time you notice it going too lean, it's too late.

when running, your alternator should produce an optimum of 14.4 volts

mine does the exact same thing... but it tends to stay on the higher side of 13 - 14v
