Lo-Tek Incorporated was founded by a small group of automotive enthusiasts in the summer of 1985. The company is based out of Durham, North Carolina. Its first mission was to develop auxiliary instrumentation for the most venerable intercooled turbo Buick introduced in 1986. Lo-Tek’s products grew to become the most popular accessories in the instrumentation aftermarket, and spawned an entire industry thereafter.
The name Lo-Tek was inspired by a short story written by science-fiction author William Gibson. The "LoTeks" were a tribe of “cyberpunk gangsters” that 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.
Lo-Tek offers a comprehensive lineup of gauge pods and pillars for a variety of different vehicles and applications. Lo-Tek’s in-house mold-making and finishing shop allows it to offer products at substantial savings over its copycat competitors. What’s more, Lo-Tek is capable of designing and manufacturing short-run custom products – something that the larger, high-volume manufacturers will not do. Lo-Tek Inc. specifically runs as a “build to order” business. Thus, the company can accommodate nearly any and all customer requests, no matter how unconventional they may seem. Whether you need a gauge setup that includes varying sizes or an undrilled gauge pod for your Nitrous Oxide switch, Lo-Tek has got you covered. Lo-Tek will even custom make a Mary Kay pink-colored pillar to go with your Cadillac. The possibilities are virtually endless, and Lo-Tek welcomes them.
If you are looking to upgrade your ride’s interior, Lo-Tek has an impressive assortment of gauge pods, pillars, and pillar mounts to take it to the next level. Vivid Racing carries a long lineup of Lo-Tek products, including A-pillar pods, steering column center pods, and dash mounts and pods.
