Looking for some gauges.
Anyone care to share their experience with brands/accuracy?

Prosport=TOOSE. I have a set on my car and they never worked properly.

Looking for something electric, preferably close to the OE colours of the LGT. (black bg, white digits, red dial)

willing to sacrifice theme for accuracy, and midrange price.

Autobahn 88's

got them from Shift Performance in Arima. Have them since June and ZERO issues... in fact the water temperature is more accurate than the in car-temp guage.

Guages come with an option of color combinations. I chose the white back lit with red needle to suit the LGT's other gauges...and it does the same intro sweep as the LGT.....suits it perfectly...

Paid (at the time) $2,200 for Oil Pressure, Boost and Water Temp Gauge set. Comes with the "Defi style" mounting pods and stands for varying space applications.

Im thinking of getting an Exhaust Temp and Fuel Pressure Guage as well....

I'm also looking for gauges.

my wrx came with 3 prosport gauges (oil pressure, boost, narrowband a/f and volt). NONE work properly. Oil pressure always reading 100%, the boost is malfunctioning (even tricked me once in thinking I was underboosting), the voltmeter digits are also scrambled.


Shift Quoted me $800 for a one of the Autobhan88's (oil pressure, water temp and Boost).

Actually he showed me the ones in your vehicle Banzai. They look sleek, I like them a lot.

I've been told that both the Autobahn88's and the Prosports are made by the same company.

So if the OP doesn't want Prosport....well......its up to him.

Pfft. At this rate you'll say you never heard of Autometer?

Sunpro has been on the scene for AGES...mainly for the muscle car group. Solid gauges.

they work.

i have the tach w/ shiftlight. happy with it.
know some other folk who has water temp / oil pressure and it's the same what is seen via the diagnostic port.

one point to note. connect according to their instructions. a jackass of an electrician said "nah that can't be right", and blew some of the colors in a multicolor gauge.

Did you check out the autometer Z series?

It seems to be a cheap option.

The boost gauge in this line is mechanical though...The others electrical

Nice, Those look sweet

I'm going to try the Autometer Z series. I just got a paypal invoice from the seller, $169.00 shipped in the US for the 3 gauges (Water temp, Oil Pressure, Boost).

I'll also let you guys know how those work.

Got these from tuner Imports.

very satisfied with price and build quality of the gauge units as well as the sensors.
I also love the fact that it was shipped with both black and a white backing, as well as a silver+black bezel.

My 2c:
Stay away from glow shift gauges, they're just cheap junk. I have a friend who had a glowshift wideband and oil pressure. He warrantied the wideband twice and each time glowshift kept sending him new units. All were defective.
The oil pressure seemed to work. Had no way of really testing the actual oil pressure though.
Sunpro isnt any better. Sunpro is junk you would find in the local parts store for the high school kids who wanna "sports up" their car.

I really liked my aem wideband gauge. Only reason I sold it is because the Innovate LC1 was better suited for tuning/datalogging. The innovate also has more features.

For the non critical gauges I rock autometer. Never had a problem with them. They're nothing fancy and not too rough on the wallet.
Defis are awesome.

i initially wanted to get the aem in a full line as i run boost, water and oil temp and oil press to monitor but couldnt get at the time. i ended up with autometer sport comp and used while leds to illuminate them...they dont match the sti gauges but it looks cool i am looking for an electric fuel pressure if anyone knows where have available. they really arent the flashiest but the sure do work well.
