This one? http://www.flyinmiata.com/Store/images/23-16100-2.jpg

I'm guessing not if yours goes to 30. You're a photographer right? Can I have a pic?

Boo on the westach. I have a westach begi gauge and BEGI had to replace it twice before I got one that was accurate. Even this one is off by about 3psi. Blahhhhh!

If you do decide to go with something that's a non forum sponsor gauge, Travis can probably get you the best or nearly the best price you will find.

my westach boost gauge is innacurate, hard to read, and the lighting lights up the floor.

Yeah, from the passengers seat, you can clearly see the LEDs on my westach boost and EGT gauge.

I feel a sense smug eliteness knowing that westach gauges are put in airplanes but this past week, I was flicking my (dual) EGT gauge with my finger since once cylinder kept getting stuck at 200 degrees cooler than the other. Yes, it was the gauge not my engine but I had a fingmutterfuingshifu momment.

I dunno about some of your guy's gauges, but mine was def. accurate...more then the Autometer I have now. But i'm use it to watch my vac/peak boost for anything out of the norm.

That little explosion at 30psi is cute but retarded. Is that supposed to be when I hit nitrous?
