    Gauges are functional (WBO2/Boost to monitor vehicle's health)..exhaust is just for noise...although I did the exhaust first, and still haven't installed my gauges, lol

    No. If your intention is to buy Prosports, you're better off with an exhaust.

    FWIW, my ProSport Halo boost gauge is accurate (cross-checked against RR logs), and works well. We'll see how it's doing in a year, but no issues yet in the 6 months I've had it. The only complaint is the little touch controller is extremely sensitive. I would have preferred physical buttons. You only really need that for initially setting up the brightness and colors though, so most of the time it's tucked behind the gauge in the cup.

    I have AEM gauges. They work great. Defi's are probably the best though. You will have to pay for them though.

    I've had to uninstall/reinstall enough Prosport gauges being sent in for warranty work to say that you're a minority
