    Tidy mate. Did you wire the gauge to dim with the dash? Or is it fed from the cig lighter?

    Its wired to the cig lighter ignition live, a perm live behind the headlight controls and there was a wire to control the illumination which I put on a grey and yellow wire behind the headlight switch but it seems to be illuminated all the time at the same brightness lol. Might play around with the wires tomorrow but it works fine as it is. The needle does a sweep of the gauge when I tirn the ignition on which is cool. Might pop a vid on later of that!

    I got it from www.rspec.co.uk its the 52mm electrical blue led stepper boost gauge

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Standard boost is 24psi overboost and 22pai sustained.
    I would not be asking that unit to sustain 26psi above 3000rpm.

    Very pretty gauge, I love it. Is it air-fed, or does it use an electrical signal from the ECU or MAP sensor?
