I knew you were going soon. Maybe the painter will have you ready to go when you get back. That would be a good present. :D

Yes, it would be a nice gift. I got to fix the Z when I get back though. New AC and strut mount.

Was the strut mount the noise you were getting?

i use the z series for a lot of things. i love the analog look and it matches pretty close to stock. all my digital ones are cyberdyne.

testing

Postby cozmic512 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 8:03 pm

hey guys
I just got to run the car but encountered some problems with figuring out the stand alone. so shes still coming along, but havent been able to perform a test against the gauges just yet.
typical. oh well, its getting frustrating, but im working on it.
Ill keep you posted.
I have to say I like the gauges as far as installation and quality of construction.
regards,
Cory

those are interesting looking gauges, look to be good bang for the buck.

i really like the STRI gauges we have.
i suppose they don't look like the OEM gauges much but the amber lights up a nice red which matches the red LED's we put in the stock cluster.
i personally can't stand the factory green backlighting.
the STRI's are a much cheaper alternative to Defi gauges & you don't have to have a brain control unit for them which costs xtra $$$
i'm planning on getting oil pressure & water temp on down the road so all the gauges will match.

I do like the look of the koso's.
the are pretty close to the stock look and
I like the back light. you are right, that green is terrible...
I was thinking about the stri, but I couldnt really find any feedback
about them from anyone. same with the speedhut revolution gauges.
so people seemed to like the koso.
one thing I like is that I can wire the control units in series, so only one power wire, ground and switch for all the gauges. then you just run the jumper wire to the next control unit.
mounting all the control units was the hardest part...

Cory
