    1.5 bar = around 22 PSI

    it wont affect the pressure at all fella. i thought about fitting one of these, but imo there not necassary unless you've been tinkering alot! Oil temp/press would be more usefull than boost on standard/remapped car imo.

    i cant find the kit for an a3 but im sure if u give them a call they will know, im seriously thinking about getting one as it shows up fault codes too, it just plugs in like a diaognostic tool. and u get all the boost pressure/torque/bhp etc, if u could get it installed in to the vent it would look wicked and subtle not like a big guage pod,

    yeah, its much better than just a boost gauge. I seem to remeber finding it in the TT seaction, but last time i looked couldnt find it.
