    Talking installed liquid filled boost gauge on FX SHO

    was waiting for mochanic bracket but... anyway i could not find a 2 1/8 liquid filled analog boost gauge, does anyone know where to find one??
    so we went with a 2 5/8 autometer gauge. at first i though it was to big but after installing it, it looks better than i thought.. these pics dont do it justice ill get some better pics in the day time.

    Looks good Jorge. Clean and fairly simple. Any reason you decided not to go with the Dynotune digital gauge? Just curious.

    How accurate is the liquid gauge? Is it simple with same connections as the Dynotune?

    I'm really interested in going with something like this. I'm about to send my Dynotune Digital one back in for the third time. Although I like it, it just can't hang with the riding I do. Even after sending it in and documenting it "for water use" it just doesn't last in harsh open water conditions.

    I just don't like the water line in the gauge, I would probably go digital.

    we wanted to stay away from the dynotune because of the electrical wiring. ive heard some guys having issues with them like awamori.. maybe the salt water corrodes the wiring or something, who knows..

    its pretty accurate and it being liquid filled doesnt let the neddle bounce back and forth like the non liquid filled. install is real easy just hook up a vaccum line to the gauge and your done.

    I ran three Dynotune gauges all last summer and the displays all worked flawlessly (lake rider but I have submerged them).

    The PET 2100 on the other hand...

    Did you use the R&D multiport adaptor kit to connect to the manifold?

    no, i usually just drill and tap the manifold while i have it out to do the intake manifold upgrade, then later on use those ports for boost gauges, BOV, etc..
