Ive been running a sunpro that I got at autozone, I think it was 30 bucks

prosport new are around that price. Check out prosport gauges, ive used two of them before and they were both accurate.

I've been wondering about their gauges. Has anyone run their oil pressure gauge?

+1 on ProSport gauges. Though some say they are problematic I have several in two different cars, including a boost gauge, and have had no problems with any of them. I even gutted a ProSport coolant temp gauge and successfully grafted it into a stock cluster.

Another +1 on prosport. They use Defi internals :).

Survey says.....
 
Prosport. I'll check em out. I do buy HF stuff from time to time, mostly hand tools where accuracy is not that critical. That said, I have been looking at there Leak Down tester for appx. $50.00 delivered. On that issue I think consistency is the value I want. Wanna make sure my moto can handle my planed build. Thanks to all for your input. Ain't open source communication the best ever??????? Gotta love it.

I got a used FM (autometer) boost gauge for $35 shipped (not for sale). I see boost gauges for sale here all the time.

I have had two 20InHg-30PSIG guages from them and liked both. Only reason I needed two was that I mangled one of them.
