    I'm thinking about buying triple pod gauges I have a 92 Accord wtih a 1992 H22a JDM v-tec engine and tranny swap, but I'm wondering what gauges I should buy. There's ones with volt meter, air fuel, and boost gauge, and there's others with water temp, oil temp and oil pressure. I will be adding nitrous soon as well. But what gauges do you guys/girls reccommend I buy?

    lmao, it doesnt matter what engine you have, the pillar mount is car specific, and unless you have turbo dont get the one with the boost gauge, If i were you i would buy the autometer gauges, better quality.

    I guess you kinda realize that I don't really know too much about cars, but I'm learning. What are the autometer gauges?

    Are the autometer gauges just the type of pods? Or are they the specific gauges themselves like water temp, oil pressure ect...

    Autometer is a brand name; they make gauges and gauge pods; http://www.autometer.com/

    as far as which one to pick; maybe volt gauge if you have a powerful audio system, but gauges that will actually help you out is oil temp, oil press. and water temp(if you want to know the actual temp vs. stock gauge that just says if your engine is hot, cold, or normal). Since you are going to put nitrous, you can also install a nitrous pressure gauge.

    the pods that go vertically along the side are called pillar pods.

    Get an Air/Fuel, Oil Pressure, Fuel Pressure... Everything else should be in your stock cluster.

    an a/f guage is worthless unless you have a wideband o2 sensor
