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.

Default 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.
