    Oh. Digital making a little comeback? HUD's will likely become available on more cars in the next several years.

    At High speeds or tough cornering situations where you don't want to look at the tach or spedo it's so convenient. I would love to have it as an option in future WRXs

    They have been around forever too. They aren't new and trendy...but racing teams use them for a reason.

    I really doubt anyone has studied boost gauges according to their accuracy.

    I would go mechanical too.

    A mechanical boost gauge is not going to be as accurate as an electrical one. Many people lose around .5-1.0 psi through the vacuum tube. Buy electrical.

    I highly recommend Maddad gauges.

    Yes ... I am quoting myself. The difference is all but indistinguishable betweent the Lamco and the accessport.
