Default Temp guages: Onboard or gun style?

Looking for recommendations for temp guages. Can I get by OK with an onboard one for tuning and general maintenance or is it better to buy the more expensive kind? Thanks for any input.

They say the onboard temp guages may be off a couple degrees (also depends on proper placement). But for general maintenance and local stuff, you can't beat it for price comparison. The VTM guage (not MIP) will even show you the hottest temp it reached during your run.

I think yo ucannot go wrong with the on board temp monitor, and always remember ... there is usually someone else at your track with an IR temp guage you couls always borrow or ask them to temp you to compare the two.

I am running the Venom onboard, and it has never been more then 2 degrees different then my Raytek. I love the highest temp hold. We will have them in stock next week.
