    Do you have a Diesel?

    99% of Turbo Subaru's will never see anything above 25psi.
    Stock Subaru's only boost to 10-15psi, modded ones generally are between 15-20psi.

    Edit: What I'm trying to say is, if you really want one, buy one. You're not likely to find a the 45psi version on this forum.
    They are available on the market from $50-60.

    The reason

    Ok I want to get the one wich will read higher boost because of my plans for this car there is no sense to buy one now that will do the job and have to buy another one later and the stock gauge only reads to 15psi I am already above that so I need one and I don't want to have to buy 2 of them

    Trust me, you will NEVER go above 30PSI - if you do, then buying a second gauge will be chump change compared to what you've already invested to get the motor/transmission to handle it (we're talking > $20K).

    Maybe on an E85/high octane or meth injection setup 25 psi isn't. On a standard pump gas car you won't be seeing that. Most cars, even with upgraded turbos, never see more than 20 psi. You should be looking at 1.5-2 bar boost gauges. 45 psi gauges don't belong on anything that's not a turbo diesel or not putting down balls loads of power.

    Get the 45PSI gauge, and have fun watching the needle barely sweep halfway across the gauge. With a gauge like that, the effectiveness of it is diminished because you'll have to spend too much time focusing on the gauge to figure out what it reads.

    You are correct that it's your car, and you can do what you'd like with it. I just tried to help you better spend your $$. Enjoy

    On topic, but unresearched... can a gauge which has that much of a diaphragm cause a loss of boost? I would apply the gauge made for the boost levels present, and upgrade the gauge when needed. Gauges are cheaper than engine parts, usually. OBX engine build and Defi gauges aside...
