    these worth the effort? (GAUGES)

    So I got these 3 gauges for free

    AF(elec)
    OIL pressure (mech)
    BOOST (mech)




    are these worth the trouble if installing them on my car? Or should I post a FS thread on some honda forum?

    plz discuss

    From what i understand, the A/F gauge is worthless unless its been "modified" because apparently they are horribly inaccurate. Ive seen ones for sale on websites that are the autometer A/F gauge, but they were modified to only display the ratio at WOT (which is really all you want).


    Autometer stuff in general is subpar quality, but they get the job done in most cases. Go for it if it matches your interior theme.

    It's true, most A/F gauges are pretty useless. Only a proper wideband A/F gauges and wideband O2 sensor will provide accurate, meaningful information. I suggest you sell the A/F gauge and get an EGT gauge to replace it. EGTs are a very important thing to monitor, as they can get quite high on turbocharged cars, plus high EGTs can also be a partial of an indicator that you are running lean. They're definately more useful to have around during day to day driving.

    so ditch the A/F one.. I already have the OEM lamco Boost gauge. So Im guessing only the Oil temp guage is all I need.
