    the guage is prob ok..as for the boost controller(and I say 'boost controller' lightly).. wouldn't touch it myself.. its just an incar bleed valve.. the tempation of 'just up another notch' is overwelming..till you overboost..under fuel etc and things go pop..my advice..steer clear.

    Don't just take my word for it, I'm no expert.. Having a boost guage is a nice touch...dead easy to fit too.

    Check out gaugeplace for a good gauge and get one of the stepmaster series. Duncan, Steve spoons and myself all have this type fitted and so far no problems as yet

    Ah, so it has! I'd recommended them to Steve and Mark - I wonder if they've gone gone or maybe now selling only through eBay.
