Recommended Guages

Most people here use stack. I really like the Vdo (cheaper and oem look) as well as Stri and Defi

I use STRI but sometimes wish I would have paid a little more and gone DEFI. Both are very nice looking gauges and get the job done.

I used to run AEM digital gauges in a matt schnell ashtray gauge pod, but Im switching to VEI. Much cleaner look IMO.
