Default Decent - cheap boost gauge

Hi,

I was looking at buying a boost gauge i have found a racetech turbo http://www.europaspares.com/acatalog...cetech_14.html (at the bottom)

that seems to be pretty well marked up to check base boost and max boost.

is this a good idea or are there better one?[/url]

Seems fair, didn't see a price there, try www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk they carry them too. I ordered a different guage because I prefer psi (the numbers sound more impressive :wink: ) but got it from Merlin, their advice was useful too. IIRC it was 30 plus tube or thereabouts. Now stuck on my dash full time even though I've set Base boost and tweeked the APC (on the 900).

Thanks Paco, Found a brand new PSI Gauge including pipes for 33 on ebay which was a little cheaper than Merlin - I used Merlin all the time when sorting my kit car - nice bunch of guys.

I'm hoping this will help find out what's happening to my turbo - a changed BPC, TRIONIC and pipes and the blooming thing still overboosts.

Thanks for your reply
