    Mechanical or Electrical?

    Which guages to get? I am inexperienced with guages, and am looking at a few autometer ones right now. So which ones are more reliable and respond quicker? Thanks.

    Nevermind. Electrical will probalby get annoying when driving. I am looking at the "silver" autometer gauges. The main thing im concerned with is the color l.e.d. it has at night
    My set up will include:
    Boost PSI
    EGT
    Volt
    Oil Pressure
    And either Air/Fuel or Oil Temp, which one do yall think is more important?

    You aren't really clear on what you want. Mechanical and electronic doesn't mean analog and digital display. Mechanical and electronic refer to the input of the guage. Electrical is faster and in cases of say oil pressure, is safer(if you plan to have an inside cockpit guage).

    Analog and digital display is something different. You can have electronic analog and digital while mechanical is analog.
