not sure about the Carbon Fiber, but the cobalt series A/F gauge lights up very nicely...

the Carbon Fiber version has a bulb that shines on the face...which can be changed to different colors.

most gauges come with all the necessary hardware in order for it to work.

i have the Carbon Fiber oil press., water temp. and volt meters they are really nice, AutoMeter says that they can be changed to red but it really turns out to be kindda orangeish red. i'm still having a hell of a time though figuring out how to install the senders to the oil press and water temp, any ideas (pics whould be nice too).

no coz i wanted a clean install the shop that did mine didnt just tape wires together they actually soldered it.
but i do know how to install it its not that hard. i can do it as clean as possible if you want.
btw sick is kinda right the a/f gauge is more eye candy it does not really give the correct reading. i dont even pay attention to mine spineyes

^^ If you want a correct reading on your A/F gauge you'll have to get a wideband O2 sensor and replace the stock narrow band O2 sensors. I would try the AEM UEGO Wideband O2 Controller with gauge (single channel of course since we only have 1 header and 1 downpipe).

I get my kicks on EC.

No, the PFC will monitor for knock but won't report A/F ratio. Anyway it wouldn't be accurate unless you got a wideband. You can buy the AEM wideband here:

or...you can get Innovate Motorsports' LM-1 for $350.
It's not exactly a gauge but it will give you a readout plus datalogging. Plus I heard they're coming with a mountable gauge you can hook up to it by the time SEMA rolls around in November.
