I was just wondering if there is any major differences in boost gauges besides electronic/mechanical and boost pressures?
I have heard the mechanical boost gauges are more reliable than the electric ones. they are cheaper too!
Not that I have seen.Are there mechanical gauges with digital readouts?
is it necessary to have a vac/boost gauge as compared to just a boost gauge?
Ya, it's a learning curve. The reason, why I like the true boost, is because, I don't have to get under the hood everytime I switch from pump and race gas.The Truboost is a nightmare to operate compared to the Turbosmart E2. WGA alone should be able to accomplish what you are seeing at this point. Last summer I was running 22-23 falling to [email protected] That was on a retrofitted 1st generation AGP NSRT WGA.
It is not necessary to have VAC included with your boost gauge.

For $40 more you could have had an electric gauge with warning and recall. Dead nuts accurate as well. Oh well, have fun running vac line to the stock boost gauge location:jester:i ordered one of those glowshift boost/vac gauges. for only forty bucks you cant really go wrong. see how it measures against my aeroscan.
thanks for the help guys
