equis is carried by walmart, but they are a very sharp faced gauge. green glo background, easy to read white oh black, orange sweep.

at first startup the oil will be jittery for like 15-20 secs, but after that, it's rock solid. is very accurate, and mine came with copper line (6ft) for $8 at walmart.


and i love the twist sleeve that locks the gauge to the base or whatever its going into.

beats the ---- out of u brackets and nuts that youy drop into your dash

I'll check em out, but the last time I checked my Walmart there weren't gauges or things I would ever think of putting in a car (like leopard print seat covers ).

anyone know where that writeup on recalibrating the autometer gauges is? I tried googling with no luck, the one that looked hopeful was a dead link. My needle always in a weird spot when the car was off but i thought that was normal until my roommate borrowed mine and it was reading like 4 or 5 psi lower than it really was I blame that and raping on a basemap on my b18b's early demise. I thought running 10 on my basemap was mildly retarded, turns out I was running 15 :1 But anyway, i still have the same gauge. help me.

Ya know... Its wierd... You hear everybody bashing everything... Ive never had a problem with 1 Autometer gauge in the 21 years ive chose them. Not 1.

Autometers are fine. Stay away from 10 dollar swap meet garbage. And if you like to waste ytour m,oney.. By all means, bu the hot new trendy bullshit.

My needle on my autometer sits at -10hg when the car is off. It gets right around zero when at full boost and i've only had it for nine months. Autometers suck.
Has anyone every recalibrated one?
