Ordering Gauges tonight!?

623 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  OSUdiesel
Ok so I'm getting ready to order gauges tonight and I'm torn between the cheaper Glowshift gauges for $160 and ISSPRO for $250. Should I pay the extra $90 for the better quality gauges? Would it be worth the money? I'm leaning glowshift sense I will not be getting to serious with my power mods, but I value your opinions.

Also I was thinking about getting the 35psi boost and 1500* EGT? I will be running a S&B cold air intake and 5" turbo back exhaust. Once my gauges are in I will slap in a #5 fuel plate and call it good. I don't really want to push it so I can imagine running over 1500* and going over the save 35psi of my HX35.

My future mods will be a 16cm turbo housing and maybe some 370 Marine injectors....and new clutch of course. Other than that I can't imagine going for much more.

Diesel Performance at DieselManor, Inc. - Taking the Mystery out of Diesel Performance™ has always treated me right for gauges.

I second the 60lb gauge idea. The turbos get really inefficient after 30psi but sometimes we tend to push a little more than we should. With a non wastegated housing it would just be luck that the pressure would stay on the gauge. Plus if you ever change things it will work. And a 60psi could be used for lots of other diagnostic purposes (fuel pressure, oil pressure, drive pressure, etc)

That is what this forum is for! Maybe I should be a salesman. I sure love to help other ppl spend their money since I have none of my own to spend!
