    some people have told me to shy away from them, but I really have no personal experience with it.

    Autometer makes good gauges
    I can actually sell you one, brand new, and a single a-piller pod if your interested
    I'm only selling because i decided to save up for defi gauges

    I used to have Autometers, they are pretty good and cheap. Some model lines are better than others, though. I prefer the electronic gauges over the mechanicals.

    The installation is generally the same for all gauges, the difficulty won't change.

    The fact that you are getting rid of them for defi gauges makes me want to do the same, wait an buy something a little better.

    yeah good call, defi gauges are very nice but most people don't want to spend 120-300bucks a gauge+link+pod. I think its worth every penny

    There are several vendors that sell the Defi D boost gauge on this forum for pretty cheap too. I think around 110 shipped. Im looking into these myself and I like it because you dont need the control unit and it reads in PSI. You should look into it...

    thanks, I think I might go with the white instead of the black, but I am not sure...Do I need to buy a bracket and if so where can I get one?? I want to put it on my steering column like the stock one...
