This is a discussion on Gauges! within the Mountain States forums, part of the Regional Discussion category; I just ordered a set of these.. And From what I've seen/heard they're very solid and have a smoothing circuit ...

    Gauges!

    I just ordered a set of these..

    And

    From what I've seen/heard they're very solid and have a smoothing circuit built in so the readings aren't constantly bouncing around.... should be fun, fairly cheap too.

    Where did you order those? They look pretty bad ass...I'm still looking for my altimeter/pitch/compass that fits in a 52mm hole.

    Altimiter/pitch/compass..... I don't seem to recall you hiding a rock crawler somewhere in your driveway

    Actually they make a VERY badass tire pressure/temp monitoring system that fits in a 52mm pod that I REALLY want.

    Those look like nice gauges. Let us know how they work out. I have been looking for a good/cheap oil temp/pressure gauge like that.

    Oh yeah.... as a result of getting these I now have an EGT gauge (autometer phantom) that I will be needing to part with. The sender is either dead or mis-matched. Also if any of you have a black faced boost gauge (that reads up to 30lbs) you'd be willing to trade for a whitefaced phantom, or the phantom + a bit of money that would be awesome.

    Altimiter because I'm one of those weirdos who's always asking what elevation I'm at. Pitch because sometimes I like to pretend I'm a fighter pilot and my car is a supersonic JET!! And compass...ok, I'll admit it, I get lost easy when the mountains disappear

    Ordered an air temp gauge. Thanks Matt!

    Gusto, it was $295 for both gauges, needed senders, and next day shipping (that hurt, but I need the stuff here monday at the very latest). And from what I hear dakota digital hardware is VERY VERY good, often used by super anal retentive guys building very expensive restore projects with a touch of fun technology. I heard about their hardware through one such anal retentive guy. They also offer a 24 month warranty on their hardware which is pretty un-heard of.

    Dunno... Never seen a defi probe in person, and I haven't seen a dakota digital probe in person either... seeing as how I've got access to welding equipment I didn't really think of that. Most exhaust shops charge close to nothing to add bungs for things.

    Dang... maybe I should have posted some "thinking about these..." thread first, we probably could have hooliganed our way into some sort of group buy with these people.

    Here's my blingin' setup now (crappy night shot). Just put the Odyssey gauge and the autometer bezel in. The gauge is sweet, even though it...umm...tells me the outside air temperature.

    Did you get yours in Matt? I wanna see a picture of the full setup!

    Looks good

    How much did it cost you for the gauge and sensors, etc?
