Digital or analog Gauges?!

Im looking at getting a set of gauges for when I do my turbo build, I really like the look of the Autometer gauges, but I'm torn between getting a digital or analog wideband air to fuel gauge. The boost gauge I think I'm going to go with is the analog.
Analog Air to Fuel...

Digital Air to Fuel...

Boost Gauge...

All input is appreciated!

If you want the ability to take a quick glance at the guage and comprehend what is happening, analog. If you want to look, see the number, and internalize what it means, or to just get a more exact reading, digital.

Analog for inside of a vehicle.

Much easier to quickly process mentally.
Digital requires you to read and comprehend the number, then consider where on the scale it is, good or bad.
Analog is right there... you know where "good" is on the scale.

Digital is better for bench equipment where you are taking the time to fine-tune something, but when driving, speed of comprehension is key.

I run AEM's line of Digital gauges. They look awesome, work even better, and have an "analog" side to them as well.

I use a digital for AF/R and analog for Vaccum/boost.

I used analog for both, only because I wanted them to match tho. I will say you might like the digital AFR more, but either is fine. Here is a pic of what I did.

AEM wideband with digital readout and colored "sweep" for quick reading.

Full analog boost gauge (personal preference).

wideband is same AEM listed above (AEM 30-4100 UEGO), its just not wired in when I took this pic



autometer analog boost
