I run a VDO gauge, they're accurate and look OEM FTW. If you're getting a ton of gauges might as well throw in a AFR gauge as well, innovate makes good ones!

VDO vision black series are the best match and they don't stand out like a sore thumb if that's what you are going for. has good prices too.
