    Where can i buy revotec gauges?

    Revotec Direct isn't too cheap, seems it until VAT is added, and Demon Tweeks say theyre not available for 15-30 days which is a bit longer than i want to wait really.

    Cheers very much,
    Tom

    Have you tired Rally Designs?

    Plenty of other suppliers come up on Google

    I found some on google but none seemed cheaper than revotec direct. And i think i'm gonna get black ones which rallydesign dont seem to have, keep things in tune with the heater controls etc if i mount them in the centre console.

    Boost in PSI, oil temp and either water tempt or oil pressure.

    While you're here - is there any benefit over using the electric rather than mechanical gauges for the temp/oil pressure?

    I was gonna suggest trying http://www.greengauges.com/ and getting some made up to your own spec. They did mine and the quality is better than anything I've seen to the price point

    But the don't list 'boost' - however as they are part of Smiths/CAI they might rustle you one up - it's worth a phone call IMO.

    There's no real difference in the actual function of either mech or electric gauges, but mech will need a capillary tube running from the engine/mounting point to the back of the gauge. It's not a problem with air (vacuum/boost) but can be a bit messy when you're playing with liquids, should it leak

    They do look pretty smart, pretty plain and simple like the others ive considered (revotec and mocal), i'll drop 'em a line about boost gauges.

    you got any closeups of yours?

    Cheers i'd appreciate that (Y) Looking at the site FAQ it looks like a pretty quick process too, fingers crossed they do boost gauges!

    I think mine took about a week to come back to me as they were out of stock on the bezels I'd selected - no biggy tho as I wasn't in a rush

    Anyway... piccies as promised








    One small point - there are tungsten bulb lit rather than nasty LED's
