I am looking for a QUALITY 3 gauge package with boost, air/fuel and oil pressure. It want the gauges to be smoked (faces to appear black when the car is off, prefer no chrome rings) and they need to be mountable in the standard nav pod. Basically I want them to disappear when the car is off.

I am looking for the best quality set of matching gauges and the price is way down the list in importance. Also I don't want a digital display.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

The good gauges come from Japan but the Japanese use 60mm. All the cheap stuff is 52mm and made in China or Taiwan. I like HKS or Apexi. Price is anywhere from $150-200/per gauge.

Look out for fake HKS Apexi crap all over ebay. The real gauges are electronic and have a control unit. Also I don't think any of these gauge smoke when not in use.

Looks like there are a number of good choices. Do you have any links to good domestic sources for these?

I am leaning towards the AEM... They seem like quality and I like the options I have. I am on their site now, does anyone have a recommendation on a good AEM dealer (online). Thanks everyone!

i had prosport gauges in my last car. they worked really good. just the temp sensors took just a tad bit longer to warm up, but once warm they are pretty accurate. and for the price of these gauges, they were really good

I'm running Auto Meter Competition gauges now. I think I paid 150-200 per gauge for oil pressure and temp. I had Greddys go bad on me in the past and they had zero customer service. Auto Meter has pretty darn good customer service.

Here's the Stack auxiliary gauge offerings:

I personally recommend the full sweep electric gauges. They have a higher degree of accuracy, self calibrate when powered on, and have much more durable senders over a short sweep electric gauge. They also include a wiring harness from the back of the gauge to the sender, making install a bit easier.

Prosport Guages. The only one not smoked is my Wideband AFR.
