Default Gauges Question

Which gauges on these cars are mechanical and which are electrical? Not sure if there is a difference between the SN's and Fox. I'm looking at an Auto Meter gauge set and there's a couple options on which type to get

The oil pressure and temp gauges on a stock set up are electrical. When I bought my gauges they came with adaptors to replace the stock sending units with mechanical gauges. The stock sending units are basically just a variable resistor in the circuit of the gauge. I choose to go mechanical because I feel you get a much more accurate reading in real time.

What all gauges are in the set?

Speedo, tach, oil pressure, fuel level, water temp, and voltmeter. Then my clock pod will be a/f wideband and fuel pressure

Here's a link. Pretty bad *** set up, me thinks. I like having a "stockish" look to the dash and still have reliable gauges, not this stock crap.

Honestly the only thing I don't like about that kit is the "Sport Comp ll" emblem looks like the Chevy emblem from a slight distance. That would drive me nuts, but those gauges look a little bit cleaner than the previous Sport Comp set
