    i run electrical gauges. way easier to route wires versus braided steel lines. in the long run, cheaper as well. steel braided line and fittings are costly. that and you keep any fluids outside the car.

    there is no telling what u get when u open the package with the way stuff is made these days i have seen new gauges electrial and mechanical be off by as much as 10% Mechanical Gauges usually are more accurate but the electrial gauges are much easier ur not piloting the space shuttle so electrial gauges are fine.

    I mount gauges in line or on the bottle valve.....if I were gonna run lines to a gauge up front though, it'd be electrical

    Buy an bottle pressure controller and set your pressure and be done with it. It will hold much more steady than you trying to watch the guage and turn the heater on/off.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
