I'm more of a fan for the pillar gauges. But they look good.

gauges are excellent for knowing what your engine is doing, especially when you are using your hardware more effectively than your stock tune allows. I have 6 in my car now and 3 more that I have yet to install.

HI!... Looks good. Ever thought of grafting gauge pods on to the dash? I did this on my "99" F-150. Needed two more gauges, and I already had a triple "A" pillar gauge pod.
