Can't wait to install these. Using one to keep a eye on transmission temperatures. I'm not sure about the other one yet.

Each gauge will give you info on multiple things. Currently on is set to trans temp and voltage. The other fuel economy and it was horsepower.. but it was saying weird numbers like 24HP lol. So I switched it to oil pressure for now. These gauges can read pretty much everything and just plug into your OBD2 port. They are a bit pricy though, I paid $370 but I had a $30off coupon for ebay (Normally $399). I think ZZP charges $249 per gauge.

Replaced another blend door actuator today, that's number two in the last couple months. I'm starting to get tired of spending $28 on these damn things lol.

It's amazing to me how Gm used these same crappy actuators in this car for over 8 years!! Usually, cars that are in production for so long have all of the kinks worked out in a few years - but it seems like they didn't address any of the known issues in these 8th gens... This car should have (or at least could have) been bulletproof by now.

Yeah, the driver side one was terrible. I replaced the glovebox one yesterday. That clicking noise was sooo irritating.

It's the silver carbon trim. Silver with the little black dots. It will be a minor change for me but I prefer it. I'll be selling my current trim, I won't have any use for it. I asked him about shipping but it was a bit much. He pm'ed me a few days ago with the offer which I couldn't pass on lol.

Haha, yeah the gauges come with a couple more wires. I'm not sure if they need to be connected for it to properly read the HP or not. I just have them running into one cable which is plugged into the port. If my 5.3 has less then 100hp something is severely wrong lol
