    That's the Autometer 3 gauge A-Pillar.

    I would rather of put them on the dash where the clock is but
    Could not find a good pod for 2-1/16" gauges.

    On the A-Pillar the top gauge is to close for me to focus
    On easily.

    From SPA's website:


    The latest DG 200 instruments have been developed utilising state of the art surface mount microprocessor technology. Whilst externally and dimensionally similar to its predecessor, internally it has been completely re-designed for greater accuracy and robustness.

    All instruments come complete with comprehensive manual, sensors and wiring harness and are ready for immediate installation.

    These lightweight compact instruments now come with all of the following features.

    ∑ Selectable backlight colour (red or green)
    ∑ Adjustable backlight brightness
    ∑ Black or white dials
    ∑ Standard Black or Chrome option bezels
    ∑ High resolution modes for 0.1 PSI, Deg C etc
    ∑ Programmable button function, recall menu etc
    ∑ Splash proof sensor connections
    ∑ Extended temperature operation (for extreme climates) -20 to +70 Deg C
    ∑ Stainless steel pressure and vacuum sensors
    ∑ Programmable warning lights, low battery, averaging etc
    ∑ Programmable outputs for driving external LED's or relays
    ∑ Thermocouple options and kits available


    PS.

    BILL_L,

    I need your help. I purchased the SPA boost/EGT gauge a while back but I had problems installing it because I couldn't find the parts to create the T fitting for the pressure sensor (I've called everywhere for help including SPA USA and no luck so far). Can you please tell be where to find all the parts to make the T connector. And also do you have and problems with the T conector that you made?

    Thanks,
    David.

    Hello David,
    I had the same problem. Thatís why I made my own. Anyway I just did a search at http://www.fittings-ez.com/fittings/index.html and found two possible fittings that I think would work for boost/vacuum (ľĒ I.D.) hose. I didnít find any for the fuel (5/16Ē I.D.) hose. By the way the fitting is one piece and lookís almost exactly the same as the one I made But I made mine out of aluminum.

    Boost/EGT dual gauge is now up to $409.99. I understand the advantage of dual gauges but feel this is excessive. Maybe they won't sell quite so many at that price point and decide to drop the price again. By that time though, I'll have gone another direction and won't be in the market.

    Yes they did raise the prices
    Here's what I paid compaired to the new prices.
    DG 210- $209.00--$229.99
    DG 211- $349.00--$409.99 (boost/egt)
    DG 215- $305.00--$319.99

    It looks like the boost/egt is the only one that they jacked the price up big time.
    Still if you compaired that to the price of two electronic gauges buy any other company! Cost's about the same.

    Try http://www.performancediesel.bigstep.com/catalog.html The've got the DG-211 for $399.00. Last week it was listed @ $349.00

    Boost/egt was my top choice out of all Spa offers . Other's also?

    I got my boost/egt at gothamracing.com for $340. There's another website that selling boost/egt gauge cheap, darklightning.com for $312. Just don't expect any returned emails and phone calls from them. They have poor customer service. If anyone is interested call this number (817) 847-8674 and ask for Steve or Chris at gothamracing.com. They have great customer service.
