    Custom Smiths gauge, pod etc...

    Good work that man! They have the 3301 gauge I'm after.

    I think 20psi will be fine for a chipped A3, no need for the 30psi item for me.

    Re: Boost Gadge

    Yup thats the one. Should be enough I recon. I can't see the wee K03 pushing out more than 20psi or 1.37bar.

    Or am I better going for the 30psi gauge??

    Yeah, the outside air vent would be MY preferred spot, but the A/S3 has a different vent than the S4 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Not bad thanks working hard, playing little!

    Not on another Audi at the minute but always on the lookout for something hence my user name! (I wish i had never got rid of my imola S3 tbh )


    The gauge looks superb, well done on the pod it looks almost standard fit.

    Re: Boost Gadge

    They have boost gages in AmD for TT's that are the proper audi red, has anyone tried ripping is appart and using that?

    Does is the ECU inside the car? ie - can you tap into the pipe going in to the ECU?? That is of course if the ECU controls the boost itself...

    Hi all
    Yes its a Defi boost bf gauge and you can alter the intensity of the illumination for lights on and off independently, its very accurate and has a 3 minute record fascility on the control unit plus a few other usefull settings, and yes its radio 1 but also listen to saga fm when wearing my string backed driving gloves [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/MexWave.gif[/img]
