Default Digital boost gauge display????

I'm looking for something like this:



That displays boost only. Not some fancy boost+etc combo that costs a bazillion, and not something that takes up half the dash. It must be as compact as possible.

The image above is from the zeitronix wideband kit. You can get that as the optional "geek/hacker" display to mount into something. Unfortunately they only have that for afr, and not boost.

Ideas? I browzed fourteenpoint7 and didnt find anything like this either, despite them having exactly the same thing for AFR.

Are we really limited to only round/big gauges?

I HATE those gauges. Every time fuel pressure would hit 59psi from the normal 60-62psi, I'd freak.

Build your own with 7 segment displays and max7219 chip from digikey, an arduino based controller like Teensy (pjrc.com) and a map sensor of your choosing. At least that's how I'm building an intake air temp gauge.
