    Default My boost gauge, little sorry...

    I haven't got around to getting any pics of my boost gauge yet, so I'm very sorry about that. Still it went down Santa Pod with it in and didn't blow out so I must have done a half good job.

    Didn't have much chance to look at it on the strip though, too busy trying to avoid wheel spin.

    Had a look today and found a tap quite easily so ordered one of these for my 888. Going to do a custom pillar mounted pod for it.

    Reason I went for this is it can set alarms and has a peak setting. So don't have to monitor it all the time. Can also 'record'.

    Pricey to start with, but once you have the control unit the rest is cheaper. Looks good quality too.

    Mine was £40 and consists of a T piece, a tube an a gauge. That's as far as my buget will strech for something that won't make my car faster of look better.

    How much did that lot set you back?

    Got it from the states for £90 delivered. UK want £180 as per normal.

    Wanted it to trim in properly and I can review what is happening afterwards so I don't have to take my eyes off the road

    One of the guys in the SEAT owners club I was in had that unit. Very smart it looks too. His 1.8T was putting out nigh on 300bhp and he had this unit set up to provide all sorts of alarms.

    Thanks I have had it on some of my other cars and the kit is good as you just daisy chain it along. So can add more gauges as needed!
