Boost gauge help...

what type of boost gauge shoud I install? the TRD S/C that I got didnt have one. I like the 3 gauge pod that PolarisNV got what other gauges shoud go in it, Oil PSI & temp + boost? Also where do I get the boost reading from?

I think a boost gauge gets tied into the vacuum lines.

i would recommend anything from HKS, GReddy, or A'PEXi. They are all good, but Greddy boost gauges are like $200+, so you may want something alittle cheaper, I dont know how deep your pocket is. I would go with electric over mechanical. instead of getting oil psi and temp, you can get air/fuel ratio, e.g.t, fuel pressure, whatevers. Yes the boost gauge does get tied to the vacuum lines

if you're going FI i would suggest a boost gauge and oil pressure gauge. things get pretty hot after an FI application, and you dont anything breaking.

btw, i see you are from michigan. let me know if you get a good deal on gauges; im doing a custom Turbo job grin
