You guys that buy the Greddy, Apexi, and HKS gauges are NUTS! Autometer makes gauges that are just as accurate for half the price(sometimes even a quarter)! Look at what all the pro cars use, Autometer. Maybe VDO's too but mostly Autometer.
I second Trevor. All the domestic cars run Autometer and VDO becuase the look good (especially autometer) and they are very functional and accurate. I think it is ridiculous to buy a Greddy, HKS, or Apexi "import" gauge and pay the extra money for just the name, which doesn't impress me much anyway.
I'm on my 3rd Autometer. This last one reads one pound low. The other ones were 1.5-3 lbs. low. I would not trust their accuracy. To test them I inflated a basketbal and rigged a setup where I measured the gauge, the gauge in my DSBC and a couple of tire pressure gauges that seemed to be fairly accurate. All except the Autometers were within .25 lbs. of each other. Since my current gauge is one pound low, I just do the mental calcs, but barely look at it anymore.
If you go with autometer or VDO, the best prices will be from Summit Racing.
I have the "exact" paint match for the tan A piller. The paint color is SEM Vinyl & Plastic Color Spray (#15283 Pescadero Sand). You can see the color match on my web site under the "interior pictures" section. http://hometown.aol.com/dwjatwwk/index.html
I also have the AutoMeter gauges ... lying around because they are not as accurate as I expected and are made very cheap. I was very, very dissapointed with the quality compared to the little Blitz I have. This one is fast, no chitter, no offset.
For the EGT, Autometers are reading only up to 1600 and this is too low.
I bought them for look (Ultra lites) but will not install it for now. But I'll use the FPR and EGT electronics as the output is a simple DC voltage and I can read it with any meter, hehe.
what EGT gauges read beyond 1600?
mine is an auto meter procomp...i thaught it would work but it stops at 1600...can i use a different meter with the original auto meter electronics????
i looked at Blitz's japan site and their gauges only seem to go up to 1600 as well?
