    Getting a boost gauge, what one?

    I have my eye on a Stack boost Gauge. The one I first wanted is no good as I have just noticed it's an Analogue gauge. It's the one I wanted, but I would rather have it electronic. Will this one be ok insted? As it's the only one they have in Stack thats electronic...

    I will be getting it in 0-35 PSI . I will be buying this today so any help would be great. Cheers

    This is the old one I had my eye on, shame it's Analogue..........

    Most people use analogue boost gauges, as they are more accurate and its only a boost pipe that needs feeding through the bulk head and if the pipe splits all that will happen is you'll hear the air leaking, its not like an oil pipe that could split and leak oil in your interior. The choice is yours but I'd say analogue for the win. Look at Stack, Courtenay do a boost gauge that matches the GSi's dials.

    Go with an autometer gauge mate, these are pretty acurate and a lot less than the Stack's

    They also match the colour of the instument dash

    Search on Google as loads of places sell them (Cheaper than Demon Thieves too)

    don't get a digital one as it will be all over the place, much easier to just look at a needle.

    Ah, I was getting mixed up with the oil pressure gauge, as I heard that can leak into the cab if it splits. I am stuck on what to go for now lol. I will get an analogue gauge for my boost now. What about this one at just over £100?

    I want a half decent one. The Courtenay Sport one does look good, but Stack are known for being good also. What should I go for? Cheers
