Default stupid cheap boost gauge

Go to your local Grainger and grab one...

The picture there is not correct, they actually look like this:

I kinda wish kPa started from zero...but whatever, it's cheap.

Include price of 1/8" NPT to vacuum tube fitting, as well as planning on a backlight.


I'll report back on ease and effect of installing backlight.



Oh yeah, they're discontinued, but many stores still have stock, and they'll ship from one store to another for free.

I just ordered two. One as a spare for the miata (or my new cluster if I stop being a lazy *** and finish it) and one for my friends E30.

Good find Speed.
