Seeking reviews on the Isspro EVA mechanical gauges. Going to be receiving a tax refund this year so hopefully I can get me a set. I havnt noticed this line of gauges anywhere but DAP and theyre 3 times cheaper than the ev2s are they still good quality? Obviously the price difference is problably mechanical vs electric.

Reason, why they are cheaper, is because the EV's are not programmable. Take a peek at the programming you can do. Then there is a optional programmable relay you can stack on the gauge. For example you want to turn on aux fan for the transmission cooler using your transmission temperature. No problem program the gauge and it will do the work for you. Like myself I've programmed the warning light for my set limits so the fuel pressure comes on at 13 PSI and lower. Then you can calibrate the brightness of the illumination of the gauge to your dash in the programming.

Your taste... That's all.

 

Most people don't know what the differences are between the EV's and EV2's. Everyone just assumes there both gauges which is true but the EV2's come with much more but none of the vendors tend to advertise the USB programming, USB cable or the Relay kits so people just walk away from the gauge because of the high price not knowing what they are capable of doing.

I have the EV 1's in mine and they work just fine. They are a good basic gauge. Very happy with mine.

Heck I just want something of good quality and that will do what I want. I don't need all the other frills... :whistle:

Marcus,

I have the Isspro Mechanical EV1 gauges for 10 years on my truck  :thumb1:

 

Isspro are excellent guages

 

They work great, Never had a problem at all .:thumb1: Fuel Pres. Trans Temp, Pyro, and Boost

 

The trans oil temp EV1 is electric the rest are mechanical

 

I actually have the idolator with my fuel pressure gauge, came with the 3 gauge kit, and never had a problem with it either. No leaks at all, ever

 

Mechanical gauges are the most reliable and accurate. Old school Hot Rodder Style

True saying. I don’t care for hat either. I May do a dual pod setup and do a different fuel pressure setup. That is to be determined.

Do you have a part number for the kit?

 No,,,,, It was 10 years ago.  I think I got them from genos or diesel manor

 

There was just a package deal price, 3 gauge set, offered by the vender

 

 Genos still has the Fuel Pressure gauge with the Isolator

Diesel Manor has plenty of pictures. I have the EV Mechanical fuel pressure gauge, on my 2nd one actually. I have a needle valve under hood to barely crack open as my first gauge got water hammer damage rather quickly from the valve being open too far. I run a SS braided fuel line from my under hood valve to the gauge, as every other option kept leaking. I could never get the compression fittings and air break hose to not leak.

I looked at my old triple pod box that I store my old pilar in.  Mine is a Autometer pod. It is a good quality. IIRC it was $30

 

I have one of those steering column top pods for my 4th guage. It blocks the speedo/interment cluster,,, kinda annoying

Yea those things look stupid IMO. Idk if I wanna just get mechanicals or just wait till I get a Qaud and use those. Itll come down t whether I'm going to buy a XZT or ADR. Leaning towards the ADR. I like the tuning for MPG but I could careless about everything else LOL. Why is it that every  thread I start the topic of tuners comes up!? HAHA!

I'm using ⅛ " air brake line to the fuel gauge with a small ball valve right at the main fuel line T fitting for the shut off.

I put a 1/2" fuel line over 1/8" guage line, so in case it does leak it will be outside of cab, it pokes out an inch or so pass the firewall.I it's the blue line, also notice on air horn I used same fitting and 1/8" line for boost.20180220_205350.jpg.54133695baa791af7560d9eae632b66d.jpg

This is what I used, no problems yet. It's a push in fitting. 20180220_205019.jpg.3bcfe86493cf9d9d309e48246547f3bf.jpg

My 4 gauge set up, isspro EV 1 from Vulcan and pillar and colum Mount from Genos, the only thing I would change is the electric fuel psi. and go with a mechanical, I know running fuel In cab is not desirable, but the accuracy of the electric is sometimes questionable,

I bought a 3 gauge package from Vulcan and it included a pod that sits on the dash. I still have a 3 pod on the pillar from  glow shift. I like the one on the dash and going to swap the 3 pod for two pod I got with the Banks kit and add an oil pressure gauge.. The 2 lower gauges dont function since the Banks crapped out.DSC01380.JPG.4d39edcdd4b2bcbe506729d0b327cf49.JPGDSC01382.JPG.01804a74feb1fe57c68b93dc68bbee2e.JPG

I run EV1 gauges as well. I did have a leak once, but it was due to the compression fitting not the gauge. It was just a drip. I smelled it long before it made a puddle and just turned it off under the hood at the needle valve. I now run braided steel hose up to the gauge with -4an fittings on it. A smaller version of what all the other fuel line is run with so I highly doubt it will give me problems, especially not at >20psi. I did the boost in this as well.

 

Like others have said, the EV2s have bells and whistles. Its your preference. Mechanicals can be more of a pain to install. I do think the incandescent bulbs match the truck better. 

 

Also, my EV1 FP has developed a bit of a buzz that kind comes and goes.
