    Default Best aftermarket oil/temp/tach/etc. gauges

    Hey guys, hope all is well.

    What brand of aftermarket digital gauges are you guys running? I will most likely be buying a few within the next few months. I want to make sure I get the best bang for buck, I've had too much bad luck with cheap shit lately

    Thanks guys!

    Autometer is good, from my experience.

    I built a cluster for my Turbo Coupe using all Auto Meter gauges. Have the GPS unit for my speedometer. Look and work great.

    Autometer in the Bird, Autometer in the Coupe, and the F100 will also have Autometer. Their custom shop is awesome. I want vintage type gauges for my F100 and the ones I like are 3 1/8" diameter for the GPS speedo and tach. The problem is the speedo only went to 120 mph and the tach was only showing 7K. They asked if I could go 3 3/8" diameter versus the 3 1/8" and if I could they could make a 140 mph speedo and a 10K tach and even sent mock ups of what they would look like. I am sold so now to start saving the $$$.

    In that picture I have a warped bezel on the left side. Looks better with the new bezel installed.
