My First Mod.
I only have 1.5 hours on it but after the first 5 minutes I realized this was a must. The factory gauge is way too small and this one reads up to 20 psi!

How is that guage going to hold up to the water and stuff on it?

nice, is it a peak and hold gauge? Supra and KS, wow, remind me of old days in 94 with the TT and living in KS.

the 250x boost gauge?
so how did you wire it up to show that you got boost? to the supercharger or what?

Looks good but this ski puts out 11.4 lbs of boost almost instantly, kinda overkill isnt? Just my opinion.

It has a Rpm/Top speed memory, just scroll thorough the mode settings, you can clear the memory by getting on the top speed/rpm setting and hold the set botton down till it resets.

Looks good. It's got to be more readable than the stock gauge.

I got to ride again yesterday and it is nice to be able to actually see the guage. The bad part is my ski makes 10lbs and thats it, not 11.4 like everybody said they would. I checked the non vacuum assisted BOV and at 10psi and full throttle its letting air out. I dont know if it has a weak spring or if its just because of the altitude where I live (1200ft). I dont know why they put the second valve on anyway unless it is to act as a governor. I am going to block it off and see if it makes any difference.

You might try a different gauge if you have a extra. I find that the Auto Meter gauges I have had are very inconsistent from one to another. On my car I have 3 different fuel pressure gauges, one on the regulator,one mounted in the back of my cowl hood scoop,and a full sweep electric mounted in a gauge pod on the A-pillar. All 3 read different at idle and at full boost. Same with my boost gauges, I have 2 of those,one in the hood scoop,and one in the dash. They both read different from each other and they are both on the same line coming off the carb bonnet. And they read different from what my LM-1 datalogs using a 3 bar map sensor. And my two oil pressure gauges are off by a bunch. One is under the hood and the other is in the dash. They are also on the same oil line coming off the engine. At idle cold one reads 72-73psi and the other reads 64-65.
Don't get me wrong,I am not knocking their gauges, I wouldn't use any others,and I like the fact that they have one for everything imaginable and good looks to boot. But they are off from each other by a pound or two.
