I'm thinkin you want the 100*-260* if you want to monitor the temp.

Are you sure the other one is not a trans pressure gauge?? Trans temp in psi doesnt make sense to me.

Are there photos of the two gauges? The price differential sounds about right for the difference between standard air core gauges (which typically have a 90° angular sweep) and stepper motor or amplified air-core (which typically have a 270° angular sweep). It's a whole lot easier to read the value on a full sweep gauge!

So michael, eighter will work regardless of the fact that it says psi. Maybe DFuser will reply and help me understand Psi vs. Degrees

no gauge set ups for an OBS?:damnit
I think most of the distributors will do OBS packages, even though they spend all their advertising on SD stuff!

I spent a little time with a dremel and used an over-mirror pod for an SD in mine. We also have regular 3-gauge pillar pods available. When we get some breathing room here, I plan to have at least a few prototype OBS 4-gauge pillar pods made up, as well as something to go on top of the dash (in front of the steering wheel, over the existing cluster). I currently have 3 additional gauges just sitting on top of my dash, so I need more spots!

Regards,
Michael Pliska

Hey michael how soon do you think the 4-gauge pod will be done?

It will be a few months, and we're still not sure if we will do it for production. I can have some made in our rapid prototype machine, but they would be pretty expensive just to cover material & labor (we have to glue 2 or 3 parts together for something the size of a pillar pod). I'll probably post a poll on here when we get closer, to get an idea of whether we can justify the tooling costs to go into production with them. I'll have the guys keep track of time and materials when they build mine, so we can have an idea of what we could sell prototype units for.

Thanks,
Michael
