Default Greddy Electronic Boost Guage

Since I recently purchased the greddy kit, I had a rebate for a FREEEEE boost guage. I mailed it 2 days ago and recieved the turbo guage today. Anyone talled one of these .

I really like the gauge but I hate Bars... I mean come on im not gonna sit there and calculate ohhh 1 bar= 14.5 psi. I wanna see realtime boost every psi...other then that its a beautiful gauge.

I have a turbo timer/boost gauge on my other car. I thought the same thing, but actually it's no different once you get used to it.

yeah it's like feet and meters. they mean the same thing.

Would be super cool if they gave a choice instead of the boost gauge, like an EGT gauge.

Default Gauge installed but new issue.

Installed the Gauge tonight after work. Used the radio harness for the power and there was a gromet in the firewall for the pressure sensor wire. Installed it in one of the center air vents.
The guage reads boost in PSI so don't have to deal with that bar bs.
But on a sour note, the CEL has been coming on an I suspect cooling issue as the CEL comes on once temp is past half on the gauge. Soooo, I got a new thermostat to change tonight. When I went to take the cover off the stat housing the tops of the bolts came off, so more drilling to do.
Eventually something will go right.

If you ever go for the Emanage, the boost gauge sender is the same as the pressure sender they sell for the Emanage. You can just tap off and feed the Emanage.

Does that apply to the smaller 52mm non peak/hold boost gauge because it looks like the sender unit may be different?
