    Which of these gauges are best in analog, and which in digital?

    I'd prefer the ones that dance around a lot (greater rate of change) in analog, and the ones with a lesser rate of change (minute fluctuations) in digital.

    Please help me categorize them by their typical rate of change activity. These are the gauges I'd like to classify into analogue versus digital:

    1. Turbo (Boost)
    2. Tachometer
    3. Vacuum
    4. Fuel Pressure
    5. Oil Pressure
    6. Exhaust Temperature
    7. Oil Temperature
    8. Water (Coolant) Temperature
    9. Air Fuel Mix

    This is the third time I've asked this tech question after being subjected to bouts of sneering and lecturing instead of just straight-forward answering. Wonder if I should post this in another forum somewhere else. Any suggestions please

    your ordering looks pretty good, temperature measurements only really move when u start the car cold and stay steady unless something goes wrong so I think its a good idea your making those digital.

    As for analogue vs digital, I prefer analogue, because it simply takes a glance, you don't have to read values.
    However, AFR i'd have as digital, as long as you have a wideband sensor, a 0.5 difference can be the difference between a good day and a bad day, especially where boost is involved.
    That being said, if you have to constantly monitor your AFR then maybe the tune isn't so good, and during the tuning phase you'd be monitoring on a laptop or other data logger anyway.

    Anything thing I say is my opinion, all care, but no responsibility taken.
