I was wondering who makes the best boost and air fuel ratio gauges?? Thanks for the help.

As far as air to fuel guages are concerned, I like the dynojet wideband commander. www.widebandcommander.com The guage is made by autometer and if you go with the white face (autometer phantom series) it matches the factory stuff pretty well. The problem is, at night, it will light up white instead of green like the rest of the dash. To fix that, I went to advance auto, and got myself a blue bulb, and put the green condom over it. It matches almost perfect. Do NOT get just a standard air to fuel guage, it wont tell you anything useful. A lot of people like the autometer "lunar" series as well, myself included.

Autometer Lunar series matches the gauges the best... I have the fuel and boost on mine... for a wideband its kind of a tossup between the Wideband Commander and the Innovate stuff... I personally like the Lm-1 Innovate.

I have an Autometer Fuel Pressure and Boost, now those guages are the white face but not the Lunars, my big mistake, Lunars are the way to go as they will match up with the other OEM stuff. then I have an AEM Wideband with the white face, Im also using a left roof support pillar bezel

Now if I had it all to do over again, I would only have a Lunar Boost, and the AEM Wideband, a fuel pressure gauge on these cars are a waist unless its for Nitrous, thats all the extra gauges nessasary, other than maybe a voltage gauge

If you have the autometer phantom guages, then you can get them to match the factory stuff at night. I don't have the part number handy (i'm in Iraq) but, you can remove your bulb, and take it to advance auto or autozone and get a blue bulb, then put the supplied green "condom" over the blue bulb. It makes it match almost perfect.
