    Too hard to read. You'd have to count each LED each time you wanted to know how many PSI it was. I'll stick to traditional.

    why would you want that over a traditional dial guage??
    i wouldn't use it if they gave it to me.

    The biggest thing I don't like about it is that it only goes up to 15psi. Most folks are getting an MBC and setting it for 16 - 16.5psi. Not to mention it only has a 90 day warranty...

    looks pretty shady to me! are you trying to save money or something?

    get yourself a real boost gauge.

    tan, not bad, just not a fan of the digital look in a analog housing.

    I agree that its crappy, Ive already got the stock boost gauge, from lamco. I just wanted people to know that things like this existed. Heh.

    kinda cool

    I have seen someone somewhere remove their stock clock and mount this led boost guage where the clock used to be. It actually looked really cool there, but I agree that it isn't all that readable. HOw about this one (heads up, people!):

    Ok the projection thing is sweet, it would be nice if they could do that with a tach so you could watch it while you were on the strip!

    Lame!!!!!

    that thing is waaaayyy to expensive and way too hard to read for $99, when u can get a cheapo boost gauge for 30 that you can see well and fit into a pod

    That HUD gauge seems cool, but I would make sure you could see it on a sunny day! I bet the glare makes it practically invisible. Def cool and high-tech though!

    HUDs come with anti-glare translucent film that you have to stick to your windshield. You affectively lose part of the visibility of the windshield by having a blurred square that acts as the HUD gauge.

    i think the HUD would be a waste - if you're blurring only a small part of your windshield, then it looks sortof tacky and doesn't fit as well into the car. i guess im saying it doesnt have that "oem" type look taht a dash pod or apillar pod would have

    though i must admit it is very high tech and innovative....or just somethin new the car world hasnt seen

    Hot

    I think the HUD is pretty hot. It's on my long list of things to get (but not my short list). I'll be getting a new head unit soon, which will come with a clock, so I figure I'll pull the stock clock & mount the HUD where it was, and hopefully get a local stereo shop to build a dash-like housing around it. Just a thought.

    Oh, and FYI, they do make a speedo/tach combo, too (or is it just a tach? I can't remember.)
