Question Could use a few thoughts on cheap gauges.

I have been looking at 52mm gauges on ebay for water temp. To install in the pod near the cluster. Yet I was wondering if this was a bad idea. I just wanted to get an idea of temp besides the cluster gauge.

I figure some of these might be ok.

Currently I have the Defi bf gauges. But I really like a low profile. So I don't want the A pillar. As well I don't want to send a lot incase I don't like it.

Get a ScanGuageII -- I have mine set to monitor coolant temp, intake air temp, voltage and OL/CL.

Does anyone read around here?

oem gauges... right. Where do I put them. Where my defi's are. Scangauge2 ok and that fit's in a radio slot and mine are all filled. I said I wanted 52mm to fit near the cluster.

I just want a cheap gauge. Something that will tell me temperature for dirt cheap without using my fluke thermometer from work



Question...

Are any ebay special gauges worth buying?

i think glowshift gauges are still the cheapest floating around ebay, unless you find some kind of used ones.. no idea if they're accurate though=/
