Default Which guages?

I need some gauges. I've decided I need a tranny temp gauge, voltmeter (dang boost gauge), and a A/F ratio gauge. I figure I'd get a pillar from DP, with 2 pods and mount the third gauge elsewhere. Which style/brand gauges should I get? I see several of the choices from Autometer on PFYC.com. I would like carbon fiber faces and orange needles, but I don't see that option. What do you guys think?

First off, buy 'em from Jegs. Better prices and more choices.
Secondly, if I could I would get you a discount because I work there...but they wouldn't like that too much.

Carbon Fiber are a nice unique look, so I say for got it!

Just get electrical gauges, not mechanical.

I agree with everything here. Electrical is alot easier to deal with than mechanical for the trans temp. I went mechanical, and regret it.

Also, remove the bulbs, and paint them red. They'll match the dash lighting better

All non Cobalt/C2 gauges from Autometer come with Red and Green gel caps to change the color of the lighting. Problem solved!

Also, you can order yellow or blue gel caps from Autometer as well....we got ya covered.
