    boost gauge thread

    I noticed we don't have one of these and I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread where everyone can post their setup.

    I have a VDO stock looking boost gauge. I'll get some pics this weekend. They are not very fancy, but it works. I'm thinking about getting 1 of those fancy gauges that save the highest boost level you hit until you do another run. At times I'm afraid to take my eye off the road. ;-)

    I designed a pod that goes in the vent to the left of the steering wheel (not the one where the p3 gauge goes - but above that). It holds 52mm or 60mm gauges. Our cast is done and we should have stock soon.

    Lollll! Totally agree though! Honestly though, don't matter where you put a gauge in a high power car, way too hard to look at it when your worrying about traction, rev limiter, ect ect. I love my Defi's because they can record and play back up to 3min of data and my Innovative AFR can be logged via laptop

    I think the ones embedded in the gauge cluster are the most convenient, followed by the AC vent setup. The ones near the shifter seem distracting but a quick glance can't hurt if you're careful.

    The optimal setup would be a Heads up Display like the M5 has w/ the speedometer, except one with the boost would own!

    I like the A/C vent gauge. It looks factory.

    The Rixster gauge is badass but someone also did a sweet ass setup with a gauge in the rear view mirror which was trick.
