    I would recommend fitting an Apexi digital boost controller and using that as a boost gauge. Not only does it give a digital boost read out, with peak boost recorded, it will also give an anualogue repressent and most importantly, plots graphs in real time of the boost. This allows you to identify overboost spikes or hunting easilly.

    I have run out of money

    I think I just need a basic one just so I can keep an eye on the boost
