    Hi all can someone please recommend a boost gauge to me, something that works well and if anyone can recommend the best place to mount it that would be spot on

    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.

    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.
