Newb Question about Gauges...
I've been searching the forums and doing some research on gauges (voltmeters, oil temp, etc.) and was wondering if one exists that can be used to read the Intake air temperature?

I was planning on getting a voltmeter, oil temp, engine temp (maybe), and possibly the air Intake gauge if one exists. And I was planning on getting all electrical ones, as opposed to mechanical, due to the fact that I will be installing them myself.

Is there any brand out there I should avoid, and are electrical gauges the best route to go?

not sure if there is a such thing...
and it would be pretty pointless to have...it's not something you need to monitor

and yes, go with all electrical...easier

how much are you looking to spend on gauges and what preferences do you have for ones you are looking for?
