Thanks for the info! New to this kind of vehicle and modification.

We did a restoration of a vintage International Scout II and used some Auto Meter gauges with classic design. Space saving was a priority, as the client didn't want to have extra pods and along with the speedo and tach we acually used a single round gauge that combined Fuel level, Oil Pressure, Water temp and voltage all in one: https://www.carid.com/auto-meter/aut...253277132.html

Yes, they are claiming that, but if this is your first interaction with Madman, I advise to take that with a grain of salt. They delay a lot. A lot. I am not sure if it is so they keep you on the hook or what, but they keep pushing it month by month... I just talked with them, and they say later this month, lol. They said that to me last month...and the month before that.

But hope springs eternal! They make a good product once released...

There is no "they". It is just a one man show. He does not delay on purpose. He is just not very good at planning product development.

I agree--it is not on purpose. Plus he already stopped selling the EMS2, so he really wants it out. Plus there really isn't anything else out there that is comparable.

Brian is a nice guy, too. I don't mean to be sound disparaging. I went ahead and invested in other gauges knowing that there are typically delays with them coming out is all. I wouldn't want to be without good gauges while I wait but i will end up getting one...
