    boost gauge only goes to 15 psi

    I was a bit too excited when I placed an order for a boost gauge and got one that only reads to 15 psi. My engine is bone stock and will stay that way for a good while.

    Think I should keep this thing considering it'll be enough to monitor stock boost or should I just return it and get a different one? I have a day off on Friday and was planning on doing installing it should have been perfect.

    Would there be any downsides to having a gauge that has a peak reading so close to peak boost?

    Yeah I would get a new one. 15 is too close to stock boost. I think a boost gauge is supposed to monitor boost spikes as well so you should probably get a new one.
