    Digital boost gauge

    Im thinking of installing a digital boost similar to the one below, I know OCT make one for the S4 and S3 but at $400 i think its too expensive. The LED's are available in any colour i choose and can have a seperate boost sensor for chipped cars so the gauge can read up to 3 bar if necessary. Not sure though whether the gauge should display PSI or BAR ??
    what do u guys think of it ??

    PSI is a more accurate reading... so will look better IMO

    But BAR is more universal, PSI to the rest of Europe means nothing....

    Scrap the Air fuel ratio line and get a set of change up lights instead..

    Sign me up. The vid looks great. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]

    Does it run off the ecu/dis then? or does it require addition instrumentation?

    Re: Digital boost gauge

    Cool thats 2 people so far, The price does drop with more units.
    Lee and Dunc u do know that it is a DIY install?? Which involves removing ur tacho. If u have some diy knowledge then its no sweat at all. Then again I may be able to get them done for those who are a bit scared. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif[/img]

    Re: Digital boost gauge

    I'm a little nervouse about taking the dials apart! Let me know the costs, parts + install.

    If it helps; I can supply all LED's and any other electronic bits free. (Probably got 'em all in stock actually! Including the blue LED's - same as VW use (Osram))
