New gauges

Well before the stacks go in i think i may get new gauges. I want a fuel pressure, boost, and egt. (wish they made a 4 gauge pillar for dodge but they dont ) I have looked around and it seems that the two i like the most is isspros new black bezel guages and the stewart warner chamelion (sp?) gauges. I am leaning towards the warner gauges because few peopl have them that i know and i like the ability to change the colors without coming up with my own system. But i have some questions about them. Is the chamelion system a gauge or just a lighting system, can it cycle through the colors without me tapping the button every few seconds, and how much are we talking. i only know of one vendor that has them but anybody with information i would like to chime in.

Rick

I know nothing just another poser.:Thumbup:

Rick,
In my obviously biased opinion (see Sig) I think you should definitely get the ISSPRO gauges. :

Seriously, it appears that the S-W Chameleon system is just a replacement for 194-bulb lighting (actually replaces each #194 bulb). It would appear to be usable with any brand of gauges which use 194 bulbs. I have placed an order for a system, so I'll be personally confirming if they will work. Just so you know, ISSPRO is a TDG sponsor and I personally hang out here a lot. If you ever have any questions or issues just PM or e-mail me.

Thanks and regards,
Michael Pliska

michael thanks for the reply. What caught my eye on these chamelion gauges was the ability to change colors and have it cyce if i wanted. I like the isspros better but i want something different, and it seems the only way i can do it is the lighting system. If you come up with a way to change the lighting let me know i would gladly get the isspros. probably 2-3 weeks i will get gauges for the truck. If you dont mind can you get me a PM on a prices for a 3gauge pillar p[os, fuel pressure na dfittings for my 12v, pyro, and boost gauge. I was also wondering what other gauges you sell, these two i like but i am still looking.

thanks Rick

Rick,
As far as I can tell, you could use a SW Chameleon system with ISSPRO gauges. I noticed that the retail websites have the separate Chameleon system listed without prices (if you have to ask, you can't afford it?) :shrug:

I can let you know for sure when mine comes in, whether it works with our gauges. One of the really fun parts of my job is buying the competitors stuff and wringing it out!

We will be coming out with similar functionality as an integral part of a new line of gauges, but they are still several months out.

As far as other gauges, we have a pretty decent selection listed on our website: http://www.isspro.com click on "Products" on the left side menu.

There are some gauges which are not listed, so drop me a line if you can't find what you're looking for.

I will be sending a PM regarding pricing.

Thanks and regards,
Michael Pliska

Well it seems you shop at all the wrong places. I can get you the SW 3 gauges and pillar pod for a very competative price with the chameleon light system FREE! There is a slight delay in getting this setup because the lighting systems are custom built per order.

Yes the chameleon light system will work with any gauges that use the standard gauge light socket. As far as we know the chameleon system is not available as a seperate purchase.
