    Ebay gauges...

    I want gauges, boost, afr and oil pressure but think these are kind of carpy.

    though for 30 bucks plus shipping meh I don't like that the afr gauge says rich, optimal, lean instead of numbers so common sense says I probably wont get that gauge from them but 30 for the pod alone sound ok?

    oops I guess I can't read they are 130 well is that still a good price?

    They look EXACTLY like prosport guages with different logos...even the box they come in looks the same. hmmm

    prosports are good, at least so far. i dont think anyone's had them more than a few months yet, but i could be wrong.
    i have prosport mech boost and oil press. if these are actually the same rebadged with multiple colors i'd say they're good.

    yeah that's about what I was expecting to hear, I guess you get what you pay for. what's a good yet inexpensive option for gauges, I want AFR, boost, and oil pressure to begin with thanks for the help.

    From all the reading I have done, most people say that AFR is not a very important gauge. It is recommended that you should get an EGT gauge instead.

    If you're going to get an AFR gauge do it right. . . You need a wideband oterwise you're better off getting a flashing LED.

    I don't know about these gauges, but I have a set of brand new 60mm Omori boost, egt and oil PSI gauges on the way. They were backordered, so I have to wait

    I had a tach, AFR and N2o guage that I used for over 2 years on my Mustang GT, not one problem. I know they aren't huge in the import business but they make great guages, and have been doing so for a long long time.
