    Boost Gauge, again.......

    I really really want to install a boost guage.

    I need one that is the easiest to install.
    I have heard the mechanical are cheaper and pretty much do the same thing.

    I'm looking for something that will just tell me my max pressure when I am at WOT and cruising. So I will know if something has gone wrong.

    I think I remember you are supposed to be running 7 or so without vortec impeller and around 8 with it.

    I know this has been run in the ground.......

    Any suggestions.

    I wish there was a how to but I'll try to get one together after I get mine installed.

    mechanical gauges hookup by just attaching the plastic hose to the back.
    Cost around $50

    electronic gauges hookup by just attaching the plastic hose to the MAP sensor that comes with the gauge and a ground and positive wire.
    My electronic gauge stores the highest boost and can be recalled with the touch of a button. It can be reset as well. Cost was $189
    My gauge is an Auto Meter brand.

    At WOT for a couple minutes the mechanical will be pretty accurate right ?

    Indy, what brand is your gauge. what did it cost. Also, what keeps it from falling out in the foam.

    Indy, are you running the Riva Pro Series blocks??

    That should help out alot. If not you need to weld an extension on your rideplate.
