    Are prosport gauges really that bad? I was looking at getting an electrical boost gauge from them.

    Probably. If it does fail, I'm not getting them again.

    I haven't had a good experience with them. All 3 of mine broke about a year after purchase. Some people have had zero issues (including my boyfriend who has had his for over 2 years)

    When did you get yours and when did he get his I saw somewhere that after 2009 pro sport has had less problems.

    AEM makes a gauge called the "failsafe." It has the boost and the AFR (with wideband o2 sensor) in one gauge. If I was to do it all over again I would probably get that one.

    Just keep in mind that for the o2 sensor, you will need to weld a bung on the stock down pipe, so if you are planning on eventually replacing the downpipe, aftermarket pipe usually come with the bung pre-welded in. It doesn't take much to weld it in, but something to think about.

    Maddad gauges are designed to match the factory cluster. I've heard good things about them in terms of quality, but don't actually know anybody with them, so take that with a grain of salt. If my prosport fails, these are what I'm going to.
