I'm just going to run Shadow Dash in both cars instead of gauges now. Two or three big *** gauges on a custom screen for the track car should work.

I'm really happy with the MaxiGauges that I got from Hakan. You can pick 10 parameters you want to monitor when they are built, user-settable alarms such as "if RPM > 3000 and Oil Pressure < 30, alarm", all sensors included, $360 shipped. Putting another set in the SAAB.

Or buy Shadow Dash for $10 and the BT antenna for $60 and use it with your phone. The screen will turn red or whatever when the gauge of your choice exceeds whatever.

I have a supercharger, too!

Why settle for 2 gauges when you can have 8?

You boys are awesomely hilarious. This is now more like a "WANNA have gauges for a supercharged miata". The question that begs to be quantified is where is the bottom line of gauges? I know it depends on what u what to use it for, what ur willing to pay and/or how it looks to u. Then there is that...is it of good quality? And some other seemingly pertinent insights.

Anyways thanks for all your wisdom and most of all experience.

Oh I settled for the wideband, boost and water gauges. I will post pics when they are installed as I think it will look a bit retro and factory at the same time.

Yes sir work hard play hard, even ancient people did that and yes w/or w/o comprehension. Live and learn. I understand no harm no foul.

Again thanks for the insight ya'll, made my decision making on gauges easy.

sort of late to the party but I just joined, got myself a supercharger and have a single gauge installed that can handle up to 25 sensors. I currently have Boost/vac and AFR, which are the two things I would have recommended for you. Water temperature is sort of redundant even though your stock gauge isn't accurate as it could be. If it goes up - you pull over and cool it down.

The PLX multi-gauge allows you to daisy chain sensor modules and then scroll through them by touching the screen. There are also different views for each sensor - big digital number, a scrolling graph with a two minute window and peak values.

I installed my multi-gauge in the IL motorsport single cubby.

How about a % belt slip gauge? Or maybe a % belt life left gauge? Guess the underside of your hood would give you a similar idea..

Analog RPM indicator would be a good belt slip indicator if you know your ratio. Would also double as a bitch indicator if you're not pegging the limiter on shifts.

Flat out or get out.

I had the PLX gauges in an S2000 and had I hard time reading them in a lot of light conditions. Now have a SC NB. For gauges - Boost, AFR, and a dual Water/Oil Temp. The dual gauges are a little hard to read at speed.

No but really those 2 should be fine. You might want a real water temp gauge, but only if you want one.

Vlad now you need one too
