It all depends on what you want to spend. If you're looking to save money, go with Classic. If you are looking for the best, Livorsi.

I use auto meter marine gages and I have never had a problem. And they are not much more than the cheaper gages. Check diamond backs website or summit racing

Cannot go wrong with livorsi. Ive used autometer as well with no probs. Faria has great gauges and cool options. I currently use speedhut , you can customize the crap out of them and the lighting is awesome. Autometer has a custom option now as well.

Personally, went with the Faria multi gage and tachometer. easy scan... when all the needles are horizontal, your good. Went white with black needles on them. Fuel sending unit on my 50 gal tank from classic works with the faria....
