Defi Gauges Install - You're My Boy, Blue

You had your chance to vote on the gauge color for Carter's GT-R and he has no choice but to go with it. We must say we're a little disappointed that nobody voted for fruity pink, but whatever. The winning color was blue, and that worked out well since Defi just released the new Blue Racer lineup. These are electronic gauges that are free of the gazillion different functions that most of you aren't going to use anyway, which keeps them a lot more price friendly than most gauges out there. So why not just make them manual? Because the readings from the sensors are quicker and more accurate. The gauges we went with are boost, oil pressure, oil temperature, and voltage. Signal Auto performed the install for us while we got a $9.95 oil change across the driveway.

The Lowdown

MSRP: Boost $192, pressure $235, temperature $160, voltage $128

PROS: Price friendly with electric accuracy

CONS: Sensors not included

Install Difficulty: Beginner

Verdict: Perfect for those who want gauges to read stats without the frills.
