gauges

What brand gauges is everyone running? Also which gauges do you have with you S/C or turbo setup? Last question are you using mechanical or electric gauges?

I use all electric gauges. Since there's not a lot of space for gauges I use a Aeroforce Interceptor to read most of the oem sensors. The others are AEM led gauges. IMO, the led lit gauges are nicer then the incandescent gauges. I like the important gauges to be easy to see and have them on the column. The boost and trans temp in the center of the dash. Added features of the Aeroforce gauge is you can set an alert (light) for any of the sensors it reads. I first had mine set to engine temperatures, now it's set for low knock. Plus along with gauges I use several led indicators. Efan on, od off, converter off, intercooler pump off and two indicators for w/m on. I use the low windshield fluid indicator for low w/m fluid. The Aeroforce Interceptor gauge reads two sensors at a time. One setting I use is to measure ambient air temperature and IAT inlet air temperature to see how well the intercooler is performing. Just plan and figure out what you want and where it will go. This will save time and money

I've gone through a few of the Glowshift gauges, I wasn't impressed with their sensors and their gauges gave me some issues as well, but that may have been electrical issues on that particular truck. I'm now running AutoMeter Elite 10 gauges for boost/vac, fuel, nitrous pressure, nitrous fuel pressure, AFR, and also a LC-1 for a second AFR.

It's usually hard to beat AutoMeter for gauges .

That's what I have read. I was going to go with glow shift until I heard all the problems with them so I decided after reading about autometer and others that it's the better way to go
