Default Installed the boost gauge to my 99" 9-3s

So happy after installation! Look very cool. I found out my car using 15 PSI in full power ( EUC upgraded ). I am going to setup the MBC in soon! How many PSI i should setup? Other than boost guage, what gauge I should install ?

a/f ratio meters can tend to be wild to watch, but a good measure if you're adding a MBC to an upgraded ECU. It will tell you if the ecu is mapping fuel correctly or if your FPR is maxed out and starting to lean out.

I plan to get the boost and a/f meters very soon. Did you do a a'piller gauge pod?

Autometer is my choice of meters so far.

Autometer does make some easy to understand A/F ratio gagues. I cant wait to have the time to get/install the turbo gague that I want.

I, like most people I presume, enjoy knowing that my engine is running well and know its worth the effort/money to get extra eyes in the engine.

In due time
Mark

I dont have time to take any pic this monrning, try next time.
I just installed the turbosmart BOV type III, sound pretty loud!!! If u set too high, the sound does not so clear.
I asked the installer, he told me that he prefer oil pressure more than air/oil guage.

p.s.
Correction: after full power, the psi is around 21 to 22.
