    Has anyone used TPI gauges. I am looking at the 5 inch quad and speedometer wondering if they are a good choice.

    guys, any time the 'cheapest' is used, you get what you pay for. Dolpin, TPI, Shark and others like them are at the bottom of the quality chart in my opinion. Yes they can be used and yes some folks have good luck with the. some don't. My money and time is spent on parts that have a higher standard than that of how much profit first and dependabilty second. We sell Classic and Haneline gauges and have never had a dissatisfied customer. We also use what we sell am love them. Opinions are plentiful and that's mine

    I have the ones w/ the fish.( won't mention names) Had speedo replaced,then the volt meter ,and the oil press. sender. The color doesn't match the others.The oil pressure is low by 5to7 psi according to a mech gauge I checked it with. The temp gauge reads about 15 deg. higher than a digital meter I checked it with. Am replacing them as soon as I can get to it and find a quality set.Any recommendations for something accurate?
