    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.

    (ouch...not cheap)

    It is a site for folks with real trucks, but they will probably let you look around <:0
