    Lamco Boost gauge question

    I have the stock boost gauge on my car right now and I know that it is very very innacurate. I want to buy a different gauge and intall it in the same spot. Can I ust the same T fitting, wires and all. What type of gauge is the stock one?

    The stock Lamco isnt that inaccurate. In fact mine is nearly perfect.

    no mine is way off. It reads vaccum when the car is off. And if it was correct the most boost I would ever see would be .05. It never goes above that. Even 3rd gear WOT

    Sounds like you have a problem with the install not the gauge. You should be seeing about .09 MPa in 3rd at WOT. and the gauge should read 0 when off.

    See if the dealership will fix it since its a factory option.

    Im pretty sure the stock Boost gauge is Mechanical.

    I bought the car used so I doubt that the dealer will fix it for me. Will I be able to just switch out the guages and not have to run new wires and such?

    the wires on the gauge are directly connected to the gauge so you will have to cut and solder it back on to the other gauges wires but yeah you can use them they are all the same
