    Gauge Accuracy

    I know this topic has been touched on before but I was just wondering why just about everybody on here complains about the poor accuracy of Autometer gauges? I am looking into getting some Cobalt gauges and they don't look that bad. If Autometer gauges were so unaccurate why are they used in almost all types of race cars in the USA? Is measuring the temperature of something that much different on a Japanese car than it is on an American car?

    I think it's the cheaper Autometer that aren't that accurate....
    the good/expensive ones better be accurate for what you pay for them.

    My autometer boost gauge sucked.

    It read 16Psi on 4th gear at 5000 RPM.

    After couple of month, it read 5 PSi during idle.

    Now the stupid needle broke, I am ditching this crap and getting Defi.
