I have a Jegs G/C to soak up, these look good? Willwren (and the rest of the WCBF gang) will be helping me install these. Willwren said electronic gauges are easier to install. So, these look good?

For some reason I didn't think I could get those gauges for that price. I bookmarked that page. I'll be grabbing those, at least the trans, soon. Thanks for the links John, saved me some time!

As a matter of personal preference (and probably my youthfulness) I prefer a digital readout when possible versus a dial. Might be something to consider being that when you rely on the gauges the most is in a performance time, like at the track. That way you don't have to look up and figure out...what that little number is at 100mph.

However..I like the look of the dial gauge better than a digital readout.

Call me nuts..might be a consideration when ordering and depending on the look and need .

I like the look and functionality of dial. Digital reminds me of old lincoln'* and crown vics. that gma and gpa have that opt. for the digital readout because they can't see the small numbers on the speedo

Called Jegs, they ARE lighted...
