Just on the topic of gauges, being an instrument/electrical fitter by trade, when I got my 30psi Autometer boost gauge, I had to check the calibration on it. I was amazed to find it reading 3 pound out at full scale. The error varied up and down scale, so repeatability was an issue.
I returned it and got another. Same again (not as bad this time).
This continued with a few other gauges, different makes too. I finally settled on a VDO number, accurate to .2 psi. Pretty good I thought, so yeah, as far as I can tell, VDO are the most accurate and don't look too shabby either!

Cheers

Gabe

Very interesting info! I'm very curious to know how bad the other 'big name' gauages are, now.

thanks,yeh the steering wheel is hiding one gauge thats why it looks a bit broken up,its a pretty shit photo but what I liked was that they just pushed through the instrument cluster and fitted perfectly,the speedo is 280km which will be nice to see what I can get out of the 3tgeu Evil or Very Mad As for VDO brand wise, they are one of the largest electronics companies in the world with alot of industries relying on precision instrumemts to maintain some pretty HD machinery ontop of this I think the oil,fuel,volt taco and speedo cost about $580 for the set,compare that to autometer ud be looking at over a grand and have to put up with MPH Rolling Eyes

I reckon a bit of aluminium fabbing and I could get the look of your instrument cluster form the old ma61....

(no greg, must get car running and road legal. do not put expense into prettiness)
