    Greddy boost gauge dies

    I didn't think we'd have to part so early...

    I changed my spark plugs yesterday and unplugged the battery. When I hooked it back up, I took the car for a drive and it was fine for about 5 minutes, then the gauge would only read 0. Then it would read boost but start hanging at about 3 or 4 psi so it looks like a mechanical problem.

    Im pretty dissapointed for what I thought should be a quality gauge.

    Now I gotta figure out if I should go with a set of Defi's or just get another greddy, but a peak hold 60mm this time. The omori's look sick too. Any thoughts?

    By the way, I was running a 52mm electronic greddy gauge.

    how long have you had the gauge? i'd contact greddy about having it replaced under warranty because i've never heard of that happening before.

    I had a Greddy 60mm Electronic Warning gauge go bad on me. Granted, it was 2nd hand so I don't know if it was damaged previously, but it worked for about 8 months before going south. I replaced it with a mechanical Blitz BLM unit and haven't had any problems since. I will say one thing though. . .I have 2 other Greddy 60mm warning gauges for EGT and oil pressure that I bought new and they're still running strong.

    I was kinda hoping to get a peak hold gauge, I wish they offered it in 52mm though. I wonder if the wire on the back of the gauge is the same as the greddy 60mm peak/hold?
