What boost gauge do you run?

What boost gauge do you run and what's the scale?

I've been looking for a low pressure gauge, such as the TRD boost gauge but can't seem to find them for sale. It only reads up to 10PSI which is ideal for a low pressure kit that will never be over 7-8. Most of the gauges I've found red up to 30PSI. That's major overkill and I wouldn't notice if I was overboosting by a few PSI because the scale is so large.

Does anyone have a link or pictures of a 10-15PSI or 1Bar boost gauge?

a buddy of mine in the GTA runs PLX sensors/gauges on his supercharged matrix xrs...

he runs an all-in-one gauge in 1 spot on his car and, if i recall correctly, it'll display up to 4 readouts at a time (or any combination thereof)

I am using AEM boost controller too and I found it worth the money because of his features.

You can set the gauge display any boost range you want + the gauge display is a cool thing to have it installed in a car. You can also setup an alarm cutoff boost at any level you want... nicee

Mine is set to range 1 to 10psi with alarm at 10psi in case a boost spike happens.

If you decide to buy the AEM gauge, be sure to install the boost solenoid into the car like mine. In this way you look at the gauge only when you hear the solenoid flicking .... which happens that you are entering boost :)

That AEM guage looks sweet. I would like that mounted next to a AEM wideband A/F guage.
