Default It provides input/opinion on AEM DBG or...

...it gets the hose.

I haz the aem uego mounted on steering column. Next to it I had ProSport (defi knockoff) electric boost gauge w/ full sweep. Didn't like it cause despite being electric the needle sagged a bit still, and it was off by about 2psi. Also other stupid issues which I wont bore you with.

Anywho, I'm really set on getting the AEM digital boost gauge. Basically its a TruBoost without the boost controller (already have a 3port bcs). Looks just like the uego with a sweeping led "needle" with digital readout in the middle.

Basically this in Black:

What can you tell me about it?
Any reason NOT to get it? Any 1st hand experience? Any issues I should know of? Should I be asking such complex technical questions on a more tech savvy site like clubricer? ( jk )

TIA
Love,
18

Check out the vei gauge also. It's basically the same thing, but hustlebanger suggested the brand to me in another thread. American made, supposedly very high quality.

Looks like it has more features, is made in AMURICUHHHH, and is within $5 of the AEM. win win win.

I'll have to research the company a bit more though, doesn't look like they're very big or been around for too long, so I wanna make sure I dont buy crap that will die in a year and they're not around to warrantee it.

This is a gauge opinion thread. Every other gauge opinion thread is in this section.

Our newest vendor (Renown) is having a sale and quoted me a good price on the AEM so I just pulled the plug on it. Guess I'll be the one to review it for you bitchez
Not sure about the other company so I'm not going to risk it.
