    Boost dials?

    hi all,

    i am interested in buying boost gauge for my wrx. I want something that looks nice and lights up.

    I have seen some on Ebay for 30. Don't know what make it is but it lights up and it's also fogged effect.

    Any suggestions?

    No you dont....boost controller requires a protune, turbo timer is completely useless

    Any website that sells Subaru parts would be good...fastwrx.com, oakosautomotive.com, jscspeed.com, etc.

    I personally like Maddad gauges...good quality, good interior match, and not a bad price: www.daddysscp.com

    And like the other guys said...those two components are not necessary at all (unless you tune for the boost controller...turbo timer, not at all because our turbos are adequately cooled as is).

    So a boost controller would be good if i had the internals done. Otherwise i would probably knacker them, am i right?

    Not necessarily internals...but a boost controller could be useful as long as you have your car tuned to use it correctly. Otherwise you are fine with your engine management (read, ECU) controlling the boost levels, as it currently does.

    It has nothing to do with the internals of your engine, you shouldn't be arbitrarily adjusting boost without making the proper corresponding adjustments to the car's computer.
