    Pics of the Boost Gauge

    Here are a couple of pics of the boost gauge I just installed on the GTX. I am heading to Nags Head, N.C. on Sunday for a week with the family. I'll be takin' the Dell notebook against the wifes desire to keep up with what's happening here. I was going to wait until I got back but figured "what the hell" and went ahead and installed it.

    Jerry, I have a question. When idling I noticed that the needle stays at the 10 mark in the vac area. I did the self test when installing the lanyard and everything is fine. When I reved a few times I noticed the needle barely moved. Will I only get a true reading when going WOT or 7500 RPM's plus or is my nylon hose maybe not totally secured. I think you know me well enough though that when I install something I usually don't miss anything...

    You wont get an actual boost reading until you are out on the water.

    Looks good!

    So the boost guage tube either hooks into the manifold or the BOV vacuum tube ?

    I drilled and tapped my stock billet IC block off for my boost fittings. It came out pretty good .

    Is it the white pipe with gold connector ?
    Why do yall use boost guages with the vacuum numbers on it. Does the pressure ever go negative ?

    Yes, it's that lil white plastic tube, and it does run neg at idle around 12- 15 hg thats normal. It only reads boost under engine load.

    Guys - Gauges look good. But is that boost gauge water resistant/ waterproof. Could you list the exact model #. Thanks.

    Autometer makes several gauges....they have a series for just about everyone's taste. There are two types - mechanical and electric - the electric units are a bit more accurate and easier to install, but not worth the additional cost. The mechanical one (shown above) is not water proof (none of them are) but they do have some that are liquid filled sealed units - they are used by professional racers. Unless you flip the ski, I don't see it being a problem using a regular unit.

    The 2-1/16" gauges come in regular, Lunar, C2, UltraLite and a few other designs...basically colors and trim rings for just about anyone's taste.
