Which boost guage matches the SVT guages best?

I am looking at getting a boost guage for my PWSC focus and have done the SVT guage install on it so I am looking at getting a mechanical boost guage, which one matches the SVT guages best.

1. Autometer Phantom series
2. Autometer Ultra Lite
3. Autometer Ultra Lite II (is there any difference between I and II?)

Thanks

Ultra Lite all the way.

silver face and silver ring.

the phantom isnt for us and the UltraLite II's are just wierd. i havent seen them in person but from the site, i cant see them matching any kind of lighting theme.

get the UltraLites and get some green LED 194's with an inverted cone top. this will diffuse the light better and will be by far the best lighting you can get with backlit gauges

Autometer NV is my choice. The green background is almost spot on.

You should be able to get a green bulb to that will help it match more closely at night aswell
