    best boost guage

    since my car is curently stock i am only looking for a boost guage and i am planning on mounting it to the steering column as it appears to be the cheapest option. so my question is what companys make reasonably priced 52mm mechanical boost guages? the cheapest i knw is autometer but i hear a lot of mixed reviews on there accuracy so if anyone can help me out or just let me knw what they think is the best guage for me it would be great.

    i always like AC Autotechnic's stuff...they have a boost gauge, but probably not what you're looking too..

    but GReddy and Defi are really nice.

    What's the highest $$$ you want to spend on a boost gauge?

    I have a VDO boost gauge that costs $30

    You can probably find yourself the OEM gauge with everything for around $100 or so. I had one and it worked nicely. Its only downfall was the size for me.

    ...and yes VSGTS14, Defis are very nice

    I've got a 52mm Greddy mounted in a cup on the steering column. It blocks the tach from about 0-2500 rpms, but I don't even look at rpms before 4000.
