Run AFR safety system with MS3, run check engine light to an output driven by afr safety system... No gauge necessary.

I got my lc1 with gauge for like $119 back in '09 off ebay I think?

The thing I like about having the gauge is first for street tuning but also, it's nice to know if anything happens to go wrong with your tune and all of a sudden you're seeing 15+ afrs in boost. With a guage, you always know for sure what is going on.

Okay, so I've decided I want boost and AFR. I have a spot for one more gauge. Fuel pressure? Coolant/oil temp? Something else? Gonna find three that are the same type.

What gauges are people using for the LC-1? Should I just go with the Innovate one? I really hate that their logo is lit up on that one.

In that case, get the VEI combo gauge and be done with it!

Lemme know when you guys install your DB gauges and can't see them in the sunlight. Sorta like Prosport gauges. Look good until you need to use them. Just sayin'.

And I'm right.
