I'm looking for an aftermarket 52mm gauge but can't find one I like.

At some point I'll be upgrading software so I want the gauge to go to 20psi, if it were 30 it may look daft when the needle only goes half way. Rather have psi than bar as I'll get confused with bar.:confused:

The big thing is getting a backlit one, cannot find, I'd like to tie it in to the dashlights/headlights and there was a thread on this I know, but can't find it.;oops:

cheers
Daniel.

The gauges I plan on ordering are from VDO's Vision series. I don' tknow if you can get them in the UK - I'm ordering through summitracing.com, and getting 2 1/16" gauges, which is the same as 52mm. They match the 9000's interior almost perfectly (VDO made the factory gauges for Saab), but they aren't backlit like you want.

I've got a really cheapo boost gauge hooked up now, and just by wiring it in to the cigarette lighter light (that little green dot above the socket), it lights with the headlights, with brightness controlled by the dash lighting rheostat.
