    Varying sizes of dial,and colours etc,and you need some sort of mounting for it,plus a power feed and a boost tap from the manifold.

    if fitted ne mate

    you need to run a pipe front a boost pipe in the engine bay , i used a self sealing tail that screws into the original rubber turbo hose, run the pipe from there to the dash, i have a newsouth pop above the steering wheel which mounts the gauge , i then got my inition live from a spear in the fuse box

    easy to do mate hardest art is running the pipe through

    What you could consider is: ODB Elm dongle had for about £8 plus Android Torque App and Android phone It's what I use.
    Thus no mods and it's up and running with in mins.
