    2 Gauge Questions....

    I am looking into getting the 3 gauge holding pod from jscspeed:


    JSC speed says that the pod holds three " 2 1/6" (52mm) gauges."
    The guages that I am looking into getting are from egauges.com and are
    " 2 1/16" " in size. What is the difference? Did jscspeed make a mistake? I didnt know they made 2 1/6" gauges?

    And my second question is..should I get mechanical or electric gauges for my oil pressure and oil temperature? Thank you.

    I don't know about the jsc speed thing although i'm guessing they mean 2 1/16". Personally I would only go with electrical gauges for oil because I don't like the idea of running oil lines inside the cabin.

    I have an electronic boost gauge. Its easier to route electrical wires into the cockpit than keeping a hose unkinked.

    patrick, which gauges are you ordering from e-gauges? If they are the VDO visions, make sure you know how you are tapping the oil gauge. i have heard that vdo's are tricky in this respect because they use a different thread pattern.

    if you get a solid answer please let me know as well.

    EDIT: oh ok you are getting autometers. disreguard my post then

    Does anyone know if autometer makes electronic boost gauges? It seems to me that the Cobalt series from egauges doesnt offer much besides the mechanical ones..

    Autometer makes an electronic boost gauge in the Cobalt series, I know because I used to own one. It's part number 6159 and I actually bought mine from e-gauges as well. Maybe they no longer have it...

    Edit: I can't find the 6159 with a quick search on their site but try to shoot them an email, they have good customer service.
