    What boost gauge do you currently have? Having mismatched gauges looks pretty crappy IMO.

    Defi gauges are nice, but they are on the pricey side, and that's a turnoff to some. There are many other gauges that offer the "sweep" and look similar, but tend to have failures (great with warranty, but how many times do you want to uninstall/reinstall the gauge?), and have a tendency not to be accurate (an inaccurate gauge is worse than none at all). Other gauges to consider would be Greddy or Omori.

    As for gauge pods, the A-pillar is alright, but I prefer the clock or steering column pods (at least for your first set of gauges). ATI is nice because it allows you to install either 52mm or 60mm gauges in it pretty easily.

    Most any aftermarket parts supplier will carry gauges and gauge pods. Try looking at some of the vendors on our site for an idea on pricing.

    I did pretty well with an Autometer and a universal pillar pod from the autoparts store. It took a little arts and crafts skill to sculpt the pod with a heat gun, but its a custom fit, and the plastic matches the dash pretty well. Its the cheaper way to go, but still looks good imo.
