    Are these new gauges are reliable for a low budget Turbo setup?? Because im kind of low on cash and would still want some gauges so that nothing could go wrong?? But they are mechanical for Oil pressure, boost vac, and except air/fuel which is electrical. <_< FAZE GAUGES

    Well they look like shit but would they perform like the autometer?? See the ultralite autometer series are good gauges but dont light up?? And cost the same as faze.

    Gayze, Sorry Sorry, FAZE gauges are ugly. If your going for that FAST and FURIOUS look, Go with Faze, if not, Go with Autometer.

    yes.

    pretty much anything but vacuum/boost comes in an electical version. and there are some electrical bosot gauges, but its really overkill.

    greddy, apexi, defi, etc all make a quality unit and offer both versions of almost all their gaguges

    he's talking about me and another friend. i like the slimness of the tachometer (that's what i have in my car), but i like the black faced ones better. i don't really like how they are indiglo, but if they were slim and had the autometer lighting, i would like it much better.
