    Prosports are also proven to be just as accurate as Defis.

    How accurate are the Lamco OEM boost gauges? I've heard mixed reviews on those...

    Don't normally hijack but I think we've answered your gauge question already. BTW I parted out my car so its completely stock now so these pics are quite old.

    I've also heard mixed reviews but never had them myself so I couldnt really tell you. But I know there are many others that may be better.

    I have one and it seems very accurate for my (stock) target boost... we'll see what happens @ Stage 2.

    My Lamco (OEM) has always agreed with the AP.

    I like Autometer. They are affordable, dependable...and built to last.

    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.

    Dials are easier to read in a car. Automakers tried using digital gauges (mostly speedometers) back in the 80's and 90's and were not well received by the car buying public. Try finding any OEM digital gauges now.
