    PSI or BAR?

    Ok i have a boost gauge fitted to the GSI right now and its in PSI but quite a few people have told me that this make isnt that acurate

    now i also have an autometer one in my boot that was in the golf and its in BAR and is meant to be alot more acurate

    so who prefers what and for what reason?

    i prefer PSI but would use BAR if it is more acurate

    PSI=BAR - ummm as it does the other way around

    Who told you it wasn't accurate. 14.7 PSI = 1 BAR (IIRC) so dont see how it can be inaccurate

    Swap it then - if its a cheap shite one then you were dense to buy it lol

    If its not Autometer then its pants imo. It cant be miles out anyway, the boost involved is only small in reality so how far out do you think it is ?? best way to check is at idle in vacuum - what does it read

    PSI as it's an easier scale to deal with. Point this and point that in Bar just doesn't compute for me.

    PSI is old school, weve supposed to have been metric since the 70's!
