Great gauge set. Unobtrusive, yet easy to see and read. Superb mounting system with a screw on ring on the back of the gauge. Very bright and clear numbers. Everything included to do the installation.

Very nice looking gauges
Very nice looking gauges. They have worked flawlessly. Look great in my old muscle car! Ran wires through existing holes in the firewall. Make sure they are protected from rubbing on metal. The plastic oil line works fine. I think it is less likely to be damaged/kinked than copper line. Just my opinion. It has lasted years for me. Just take the added precaution of shielding it where it runs by the hot engine. I used some cheap plastic wire shielding I bought from a local auto parts store. No problems. Used a Tee fitting at the oil pressure outlet on the engine block to supply both the oil pressure gauge and the low oil idiot light on my dash. My water temp probe fitted into an auxiliary water port on the water passage of my aftermarket eddy air gap intake with an adaptor I bought from my local Ace Hardware. Honestly, the most difficult part of this install was mounting the cluster bracket under my dash.

The gauges installed easily and have worked flawlessly since installation, the look very nice also. This is my second set of Equus gauges, both have worked perfectly fine.

Smaller than the regular 52mm gauges but they all work perfectly and it's a great look under my CD Player.

I only bought it to get the 1. 5 ...
I only bought it to get the 1.5 inch voltmeter, the oil and temperature gages can be bought separately but not the volt meter

Fool proof installation
Very nice gauge set. I installed these gauges in my 1980 camaro in about 4 hours. The hardest part of the install is creating the 20mm hole required for the supplied grommet to fit into. The oil and water lines feed through this grommet. If you're like me and don't have a large 20mm drill bit, here is what I did to achieve the hole.
1.) grab your largest drill bit and drill a hole through the firewall of the vehicle in some spot close to where the gauges will sit. I placed mine above the center console, and drilled my hole beside my gas pedal.
2.) grab a deep well socket set that has socket sizes ranging from the size of the hole you drilled all the way up to 20mm.
3.) get the socket that is just barely bigger than the hole you drilled (whatever size that may be) and put it on an appropriate sized extension
After that, grab a hammer and start hitting the socket through the hole; expanding it. Repeat for all sockets until you're at 20mm.
That's what worked for me anyways.
Besides that, the kit some will all the adapters you will need to install onto a small block chevy with no guess work involved. You will need to solder or crimp on the connectors for the voltmeter and backlights. Splice the power wires into keyed ignition power and the ground into a suitable grounding point.
I would buy these gauges again.

Seems to work well..getting the colored bulb covers on is a little tricky..I like the way it lights up and its much easier to see at night then the old sunpros I had before.

Poor product and support
I bought these and got them installed in an afternoon. Word of advice, buy some 1/8" copper tubing. The nylon is useless because, like most plastic that touches really hot engine parts, it melts. Once I got the gauges installed, the oil pressure needle sticks. So I email Equss support who take several days to respond and tell me perhaps I have air in my line... seriously?!?! I sent them a video of the needle while the car is running and what happens when I turn it off (needle didn't move). They tell me they are going to ship a new one out, 2 days later they tell me it shipped. When asked for the UPS tracking, they say they have none. It has now been 16 days since I was told they shipped it. I contacted Equus again for an update and they tell me to wait another week. After a week went by, I still had not received the product and informed the Equus customer service rep. I received a call from him telling me it would be shipped out 2-day air and they would provide tracking for this package. A few minutes later I received tracking on a package they sent out 2 weeks after they were supposed to send the package. I should have bought the Autometer gauges instead and do not recommend this company.
