    Boost Gauge?

    Hey guys i am putting the carbon fiber gauge pod in the mirror and was wondering what size the holes were, i got a 2 1/16 DB AFR gauge with my LC-1 and am looking at boost gauges right now just not sure what kind i want, i like the carbon fiber auto meter gauges, just dont want a 30psi gauge was looking for a nice 15psi vac/boost gauge that way when i hit 13.5 psi or so its not looking weak. Let me know what u guys are running and a good place to get them thats not over priced.

    I dont remember exact size.
    I use dynatune digital. Easy to read and is in tenths. Very acurate, no bouncing arround with the numbers.

    The analog tach gauges like your speaking of look really cool too.

    I think that the analog tach gauges are much cheaper but then you have to run a boost line to mirror pod and with digital the sending unit is close to manifold.

    If you go digital, dont go with the cheap brands. If you do you will have problems with readout working properly for any lenght of time.

    I am not really putting it in there for anything other then to see if i would be having a boost issue or leak not to keep track of how much boost it really. Like if its boosting 12 when i install gauge and then go to lake like 3 times and its down to 7 then i got an issue.

    DynoTune gauges are the only way to go for "accurate" readings. They require a 1-7/8" cut out.

    NO. You have to use some kinde of silicon or "black magic".

    I bought my autometer marine grade gauges through REX Marine, they seem to have decent prices.

    here is a pic of the finished product, i was told the CF pod I got through Jerry will only fit the RXP (in case anyone was interested)
