Looks good Dan and reasonable price.

Glad it worked out.

Dan, I'm curious as to what that black box is in the lower left corner of the pic. Looks like a knob on top and a wire coming out the front.

Self-destruct? Co-pilot eject? Auto-blackwater-dump on the lot of your neighbor with the constantly barking dogs (that might be me), as you pull away?

I was also wondering what that was. I'm going to guess it is some kind of brake controller for toad or trailer

We just did a Isspro Performax 3 gauge install and the color coded silk screen warnings on the dial face can be had on a lot of their gauges. Keeping in mind the pyro and whether you are going pre or post-turbo as the reading is higher pre-turbo, but looks like they have options for that. The Performax don't need individual dimmers as the ESP unit controls this.

All my research showed the break even point between the EV and Performax lines was around 3-4 gauges. The Performax are like the Borg, they Assimilate into the ESP share the same cable (up to 20 gauges) and then run off the same three wires at the front of the buss. 2 wires are Optional (dimmer input and Mode switch) so I'd run a 5 or 6 wire cable if you are sourcing your own. If you do EV and later decide to go or replace existing gauges there's no need to do a new run, switch over to the ESP unit, swap a few sensors and gauges around. Flog the old gauges on eBay. I believe the Performax gauges individually are less expensive as well so there's a cost savings the more you have.

Only have 1 evenings drive on these so far but am very pleased with them. Much nicer and easier to read than the combo aftermarket Boost/EGT that was on my fathers Ram Dually.
