Cool idea, but they are mostly junk...
If you do a search you will find MORE then a couple of threads describing the trouble people have gone through using them. There are only a handful of people who have NOT had ongoing problems.
You'd[probably be doing yourself a favor by getting another brand.
Personally, I like the Westach Dual gauges, sold at Genos Gargage, for accuracy and reliability. Westach has its roots in Aviation gauages. Their white face/green light dual Boost/EGT fits and works perfectly in the oem A-pilar pod with grab handle. Genos sells both the gauge and pod at a fair price. They also have GREAT customer service.

Some people love them, others hate them.
They seem to stand behind their product well but who wants to hassle with removal and returns?
Personally I prefer to buy American = Isspro

Do a search for GloShift here and you'll find all kinds of comments.

Ive had glow shift for a year now and love'em. Never any problems at all. These came out of a duramax after being used for 2 years. They work perfect.

I have the 3 in 1 boost egt temp gauge. Got it off eBay and have not had a problem with it in a year and a half. Can't beat the price either.

thanks for the in put guys not sure which way i'll go yet after getting mixed input.i do like the idea of staying American made.the glow shift look cool on the web site but cool doesn't mean reliable.this is for my 89 truck w/95 Ppump motor.i would like to do all the gauges in the truck, seedo, tach,temp. ect ,but going Autometer would cost over a grad ouch.while i,m asking does anybody know where i can get an Apiller triple gauge pod for a first gen?only been able to find doubles.thanks again for your input.

Thing I like about the Isspros is even years after the warranty was supposed to be over they're still happy to replace any problem gauges for free.
Most times they don't even want the broken one back.

My boost gauge works fine but my EGT does not. Since day one i have had issues with it. The probe is good but the gauge itself is not. If i did it again i would go with a better set the first time.

I have a Glowshift trans temp gage and I've been happy with it. LED backlighting even changes colors which the kiddies seem to enjoy

I also have a fuel pressure gage but have not installed yet.

Big name gages are big money. I'm sure you get what you pay for. I'm just not willing to pay for.

i had isspros in my 03 f250 and since buying the dodge i figured i would try out the glowshifts. i read some good reviews and then some not so good..for the price i bought them. had them in maybe 2 days after buying the truck (they are about 45 mins west of me so i just picked them up)..i bought them in August of this year so only a few months now however i cant complain. i got a great deal on 4 gauges and a 3gauge pod and a single pod for the fp gauge. all the sensors and adapters for under 300 bucks. i think it was in the neighborhood of like 275 actually. cant beat that.
