I have an vintage Boost Gauge with the tell tale needle and the reset key like in the 935 race cars. It perfectly replaces the factory clock.
Very easy to install using the small tube to the nearby
brake booster vacuum line only 2 feet away in the trunk on the opposite side of the dash board.
The vacuum like is the best way to install a boost gauge.
I will try to post photos.
The tell tale needle shows the highest boost and the additional needle stays there until you use the key to reset it. This way you will notice intermediate boost creep or the see if your wastegate diaphragm is stating to leak.
I blew an engine this way and did not notice when my wastegate diaphragm was starting to go.
You may not notice a 1 second over boost without a regular boost gauge without the tell tale needle. Well worth the money compared to rebuilding a blown engine due to interment temporary over-boost.
Price $495.00
