    Quick Guage Question (Defi's)

    Alright I am going to buy an autometer bezel and throw in two D series gauges from Defi. The boost gauge and the EGT gauge. I figure im running without gauges long enough and dont wanna do any harm to the engine. I have the stock boost gauge (but their garbage) and Im taking that out once the gauges come in.
    My question is do I need to buy the Defi-Link Control Unit II in order for everything to work properly?? Im kinda at a loss here, sorry. Thanks for all the help.

    Yeah, but unless they changed something, the D Gauge has amber illumination.

    Not sure that you can make the D-Gauges match. I bought the link gauges. I had a DGauge for a year before I bought my Link. Here is what it looked like in the bezel.

    Any 52mm gauge should fit the bezel. The D Gauge's clamping system actually works better in it, but the Links stay in there fine. I got mine from Optionimports.com. Best prices, but they were really slow shipping the second time (when I ordered the Link parts, I don't remember them being as slow when I got the D-Gauge a year earlier...)
