dp-tuner Gauges

Hey Guys,
Planning on getting a dp chip in the near future and was just wanting some input on what digital gauges would work with the chip or are piller gauges a better bet.

With a chip you can use pretty much any gauge. Digital gauges have more features, but aren't as easy to read on the fly as pillar gauges.

I have fond that also with digital gauges with the readings that it gets from the OBDII port have been cooler readings that what I have seen when I switched out to analog gauges. Specifically the tranny temp with the outlook monitor, I have noticed a 30-40 degree differance in the temp reading with the identical travel path and ambiant temp being off by no more then 2 degrees(which I would consider that neglible, but to some maybe not). Based on that experiance I would say analog gauges because you can determine where the probes are without having to depend on where the auto maker put the probes and with the digital OBD-II gauges the only one that you can choose the location is the egt.
