    you BETTER have a turbo or im gonna come over there and kick you in the nuts... (since your title states "anti-rice")

    if you have a turbo... wheeee... enjoy.

    not a terribly helpful post.... sorry, im in a nutty mood...

      umm does a turbo subaru count?
      granted its the ""wife's"" or so she thinks
      and its a gl-10 wagon it still spanks most body kitted honda's

      no it does not have a 20 foot triple decker wing

      its givin me a very nasty idea for a mutant brat
      hehe but i still wish to have a boost gauge that does not cost me a fortune
      WINNER!!!!

              An electronic boost guage is simply a voltmeter connected to a boost sensor. The boost sensor outputs a voltage dependant on pressure. So the key is the sensor. Any number of aftermarket sensors exist, though just grabbing a good mechanical (not AutoMeter) boost guage is probably cheaper and easier.

                    Also anti-rice

                    Definately buy one if you really want to monitor your boost...

                    There are digital ones that you could custom install if you wanted.

                        cool its a starting point i was thinking of useing a pic controller to read boost and vac from the transducer and other stuff like intake temp and such and feed it to a lcd controller with a programmable hey stupid light if the boost goes over a certain pressure
