Lo-Tek Incorporated was conceived by a small group of automotive
enthusiasts in the summer of 1985. Our first mission was to develop
auxiliary instrumentation for the venerable Intercooled Turbo Buick
introduced in 1986. Our products went on to become the most popular
accessory in the instrumentation aftermarket, and spawned an entire
Our in-house mold-making and finishing shop allows us to offer our
products at a substantial savings over our copycat competitors. We
can also design and manufacture short-run custom products - something
the large, high-volume manufacturers won't do.
Lo-Tek Inc. operates as a "build to order" business. Consequently, we can
accommodate almost any customer request - no matter how unconventional.
Need a 60mm gauge on the bottom, and a 2 1/16" gauge on the top? No

an undrilled gauge pod for your Nitrous Oxide arming switch? No problem.
The name Lo-Tek was inspired by a short story written by sci-fi author
William Gibson. The "LoTeks", a tribe of cyberpunk gangsters, developed
unconventional uses for technology - mainly to further their own
alternative agenda. The story is entitled "Johnny Mnemonic," and bears
only a slight resemblance to the movie of the same title.
