Thanks guys.

So to be very specific, will a supercharged engine running at 14 lbs boost ever be running at vacuum?

My primary goal is to have an indicator on the dash to indicate a problem with the motor while on the track. All the tuning is accomplished through dyno sessions and logging of ~20 variables. The gauge is more of a warning system on the track to know when there is a problem.

Also, any other comments on mechanical vs electric? The brake booster hose passes right under the dash so it seems that would be a convenient source to tap into for a mechanical gauge. Interested if there is an appreciable difference in accuracy and reliability between mechanical and electrical.
