    Recommend a boost gauge please

    Personally id go for a Stack gauge (to match existing dials), colour the backing film red to match dials when lit and i'd use an LCR pillar mount (I'd paint Matt black to match the dash and allow the gauge to blend in nicely - I tried this and material surround but this looks far far better) available on eBay.

    Examples are in my progress thread.

    Ming Blue S3, Stage 3 Hybrid Turbo, Custom Map, Bosch 480 injectors, Custom TIP, Forge FMIC, 3" Downpipe, 200 Cell Sport CAT, Full Stainless, XS Power Mani, 6 Paddle Clutch, Red silicone hoses, LCR Brembo's, Forge 007p, KW Suspension Kit, Green filter, THS Mounts, 11mm & 16mm spacers, H&R Anti-roll bars, RS6 18" alloys, Michelin PS3's, Red Dog Bone Mount, Neuspeed quickshift, Boost Gauge, Aero wipers, LCR splitter, Forge Tie-bars, LED bulbs, Armrest, Custom TT pedals.

    I had an autometer ultra lite II in my LCR with the replacement A pillar mount. Very nice 30psi gauge, but had to upgrade the bulb to LED to get it to mirror brightness of the main dash lights.
