    HD Video - Prosport Premium 60mm Gauges

    A short HD video showing an opening and closing ceremony, as well as daytime and nighttime modes of Prosport Premium 60mm Gauges mounted in a 05 WRX Wagon.

    For now they are temporarily installed on top of the clock until I get a pod. One caveat of having them this way is that the daisy chain power cables are exposed in the back and they shake just a bit when going over bumps.

    Video description and short list of pros and cons:

    Gauges are set up in such way that they change from white to amber when lights are turned on.

    From left: boost, oil pressure, exhaust gas temperature.

    Pros:
    - easy installation
    - quite precise if installed correctly, especially the boost gauge
    - low price
    - catchy opening/closing ceremony
    - audible warning can be turned off
    - easy and cleaver way to daisy chain the gauges for power
    - more then enough cable provided for most applications
    - peak warning sound
    - peak recall

    Cons:
    - hoods and front buttons rattle
    - audible warning way too loud at idle
    - needle hard to see in daylight
    - can be bit noisy in a quiet car, especially the EGT gauge makes a lot of ticking noise making minuscule needle corrections the whole time
    - weak and awkward stands (pod may be a better option)
    - hard to plug in cable connectors in the back (I had to break off the safety clips to make them go in all the way)

    Overall, they are a good bang for the buck. There are other more expensive gauges if things like hardly audible motor ticking, and random button rattle make
    a big difference but in my opinion if the installation is performed carefully with attention to all details such as tight and short connections between the
    boost pressure sender and the T-connector, then they can very well serve their purpose on par with more expensive equipment without breaking the wallet.

    Little known fact:

    Prosport gauges = Glowshift guages

    Yet you will find people praising Prosport and talking down on eBay's Glowshift simply because they think the former is higher quality due to price differences. Both have the same lack of QC and high failure rates.
