    Definately metric!

    Isn't it great how we're the only ones left using the old Imperial units? Inches suck!

    I like imperial gauges better, but I'll admit that when it comes to measuring the length of something, metric is easier.

    do english...unless you switch everything else to metric.

    If you do...get the Canadian speedometer so you don't need to remember the MPH to KPH conversion on the fly

    Screw metric! When I look at my EGT/oil temps, I want to have an idea of how hot they would feel if I were to feel it. Not looking at celcius only knowing that water boils at 100 degrees. I know what 80 degrees farenheit feels like, not 40 celcius.

    Same with PSI. I already have a boost gauge in bar. "I just hit 15 PSI" means more to most people than "I just hit 1.10 bar!"
