    Default Boost Gauge

    I've been looking for a boost gauge for a while, but haven't seen one I liked, until Trax, found a really neat one on the trade stands.
    It may not be to everyone's taste but I really like it, even if it is a bit in yer face when its lit up !!!
    Fitted it today and spent ages trying to find a neat mounting solution, anyway, it will do for now.

    It's face is blacked out when it's off.





    And it's a really neat, slim little thingy.





    It's a volt meter as well, and shows the battery voltage for the first 50 seconds after you turn the ignition on.





    Then it switches over to boost pressure, in Bar.
    It flips back over to battery voltage every 10mins during driving and then back to boost again, a really neat idea I think.
    No boost at tick over though, lol.





    But it does work, lol.



    Normal boost seems to be just under 1 Bar, full throttle giving 1.2-1.3 Bar, though you do get an occasional peak of 1.5 Bar under heavy load/throttle.
    Well pleased with it myself.

    Cool Looks good that. I prefer the analogue look though.

    If I find an A pillar pod for a Vec C I will let you know.

    Why canīt I see the pics in this thread ?
    I can see 95% of the pics in this forum, but sometimes its just a little white box with a red X.
    These pics are not uploaded, perhaps itīs the firewall?
    (Iīm at my job now) But the firewall usually tells me "this is forbidden" or something like that.

    Nice, I would love a boost gauge but don`t like things which are stuck on, would need somewhere to build one in .. Not even keen on the A Piller pods that you see.

    'tis very slim Martin. Looks good - and even better 'when you find a mount you like.

    I almost bought something similar (stealth gauge but analogue style) at Trax as well, but decided that I preferred what I had
