Anyone know where to get some nice white faced temp and press guages.?The autometer ones are nice but like 70 each. Is there anywhere cheaper but same quality and looks?

VDO Gauges are built pretty well, they do offer them in white faced, and the cost is normally around 30 bucks a piece. Summit Racing, Jegs and most autoparts stores carry them. As for the autoparts stores most of the time you have to order them from their performance catalogs.

I used to work for VDO, and seen how they were assembled, very good engineering team on the gauge side. I guess that I am a little biased in that fact, since I worked for the dept that pumped out the OEM cluster sets for various high end automakers.

Equus Gauges, about middle of the market. REMEMBER you get what you pay for.

I have equus gauages from walmart cause I wanted something cheap until I could afford to buy some nice autometer guages and they work quite well and look just fine. They were like $50 for 3 guages although I didn't want a volt guage it was a good price instead of $25 each. I put the volt guage in my boat.

you can usually find the stock power ones fairly cheap on ebay.
