    NEED some suggestions

    I am looking to buy a boost controller and gauge today for my 2003 wrx, i need some suggestions on which ones to get, i ordered a boost gauge off of ebay and its a piece so im going to do it right this time and get a nice gauge and boost controller. Please leave me some suggestions and i will look into them. Also someone told me i can run up to 18 psi safe in my stock wrx and this sounded a little off to me, please tell me the safest number i should be boosing at. Thank you!!

    14.5psi peak is safe on a stock WRX with engine management.

    The most reliable gauges are mechanical, and AutoMeter does them best. Check out the UltraLite series for simplicity and reliability. For electronic gauges, ProSport is the best bang for the buck.

    Don't get one! Especially with a stock WRX. Boost controllers + stock engine = boom.

    Save your money and instead get some engine management.

    +1. only time you should get a boost controller is if your tuner tells you to before a protune.
