    Looking too get a thread of feedback about experiences with choice on EGT guages. What is working, and how well and long. What have been the bad experiences, and wasted money. If you had installation problems, or creative solutions it would be valuable as well. If there are solutions that add more features than just monitoring temp, such as datalogging, multiple sensors, alarms, ect ?? Please include facts about install, IDI, PSD, Turbo / NA, manifold sensor location ?
    Links to installs, products appreciated, , but really don't think a lengthy badmouth / flaming a distributor is what we need.
    Thanks in advance.

    Well you’re asking a lot right there. Do some research and form an opinion of your own, personally I run only autometer in our stuff, comes with everything you need and have had over 150k trouble free miles

    I'll make it short. Glowshift has proven to be junk.
    ISSPRO and Autometer are pretty good.
    I like the auber instruments stuff, since I don't necessarily like the round gauge look. Lol https://www.auberins.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5_26

    I want to thank the latest responses, as that is the kind of feedback I was hoping to see. My search of the forums returned a sparse at best resource on long term results on egt products. I was hoping this thread would provide the next researchers a thread providing valuable resources. I am planning adding my install, function, satisfaction, feedback when finished.
    TIA to all of forum.

    I love my Auber EGT gauge.

    From the Auber site:

    "The gauge has the recall function which allows user to check the maximum or the minimum pressure and its occurrence time after run. The meter has a programmable alarm that can be set as high limit or low limit alarm. The alarm is displayed on the front panel with bright LED that is very noticeable. The alarm signal can also be sent out from the built-in relay. It can turn on a buzzer or other device (such as a water cooler). The LED brightness can be synchronized with headlight. When the headlight turned on in the night, the display will be dimmed by the illumination signal. It can also be dimmed directly from the key pad."

    Here it is installed in my Project Truck:



    Edit: BTW, welcome to the forum! :)

    I really like my isspros. but with anything you get what you pay for. buy quality products you are trusting your engine to them.

    I have a triple pod of ISSPRO with green filters for the lights. They have worked flawlessly for well over 10 years. Wish I had done Autometer as they have a better match to factory look IMO. Quality wise I don't think you can go wrong with either. My probe is in my Bank's downpipe which has a NPT bung preinstalled. Install was simple, just mount the thermocouple and Chase some wire. I took more time than necessary test fitting but I am a little OCD.
