fuel pressure gauge & boost gauge

I am looking at getting the following two gauges:

http://www.autometer.com/cat_gaugede...gid=2570&sid=4

http://www.autometer.com/cat_gaugede...gid=2568&sid=4

Is anyone else using these? Good / bad? Are there better gauges I should be looking at?

It appears these run about $200 each (ouch). Recommendations for where to get the best price?

...and any guesses on install time for each of these gauges?

I've run Autometer for years and have nothing but great things to say about them.

Question, are you supercharging? Or Turbocharging? If turbocharging, you may want to use a combination boost/vacuum gauge. If supercharging, well, it's on boost all the time, pretty much.

Maggie supercharger. I think I'm going with GTO styled gauges. Take a look at http://www.ls2gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=79642. Love it!

In that case, boost-only is perfect. There won't be any vacuum to monitor...
