    Autometer Boost Gauge Qs (no luck in search)

    So, I know I want the boost/vac combo gauge, but I would like to hear opinions on:

    - 20 PSI or 30 PSI. Not planning on monster boost, but want to know what some of you think.

    - Colors. White, black, silver, indiglo? I have no clue - which looks best with the stock gauge pod?

    - Best prices? Nopi? Summit? Group Buy?

    Thanks,

    Jimbo

    The 20psi unit will be easier to read than the 30...

    Unless you're going BIG turbo - I don't think you're going to see anything approaching psi. The 30psi gauge makes it harder to read accurately in the smaller boost range as well. Go 20psi.

    Color is personal preference - but I like my VDO gauge because it matches the stock lighting/look so well.

    I got a good price at www.summitracing.com...

    Summit has great prices and ships things super fast with great customer service. Ordered the Autometer gauges yesterday (Sunday) and the parts will be at my door by Wednesday, using ground shipping. I went with the Z series for price, they looked easier to read and I loved the silver ring around them. My 2 cents
    It's not a damn beanbag!

    I got the 30psi from Summitt (no 20psi version in stock). It's not hard to read really, but the 20 might be easier. I went with the Sport-Comp series, their black faced, with a silver bezel that matches the silver interior trim pretty much perfectly.

    If you have the skrilla (aka money), there's a new autometer 30psi electric gauge that has peak and playback ability... for $200.

    Here's a (crappy) pic of my SportComps (boost and EGT, in an autometer A-pillar pod)... I've also got oil temp, pressure and a clock in the stock center pod.

    I went with the Ultralite (silver) 20psi. Lights up green like stock, or I can change my bulb condom and make it light up red.
