Default Quality Multi Function Gauges

I am looking into a couple gauges to help monitor my engine as i start to track my car and upgrade the power a bit. (Also having blown my engine once under warranty makes me worry about it)

Ideally I want to be able to monitor the boost pressure, oil pressure, and oil temperature (for now). Unfortunately I am not a fan of having a bunch of gauges in the cabin so I am trying to find 2 in 1 gauges. My ideal situation is to have a boost pressure stand alone and a 2 in 1 oil pressure/temperature gauges mounted in an SMY gauge cluster.

I have found a few options for gauges that work:
Depo Racing: http://www.deporacing.us/shop/2-in-1...a603426b-copy/

Innovative MTX-D Dual function gauges

and a few others via http://www.iwsti.com/forums/gr-inter...s-exist-5.html

But this issue of quality comes into play as i have read the Depo gauges are considered crap. The innovative gauge doesn't have any horrible reviews but isn't ideal from an atheistic perspective and impossible to get a single function gauge to match from them.

Does anyone know of a solid quality multi function gauges? Can anyone fill me in why the Depo gauges are considered crap? Does anyone have any experience with innovative gauges?

Or if you have any different solutions ideas are appreciated!

PLX and VEI make them. I don't have much first hand experience with either though.

I have seen PLX gauges before, the design seems a little complex for my goals.

VEI systems is one I haven't seen. They fit the bill perfectly, unfortunately not a lot of people have reviewed them. Might have to be a test dummy when the time comes.

Thanks!

Just saw these for the first time too (VEI) and I am definitely impressed. Oil Temp and Oil Press. in one gauge is nice.... $246.00 is a bit spendy but hey...

Oh man, I hadn't checked what pressure range I would need and yeah that's a decent chunk of change.

Might be worth is if the quality is solid.
