It will be interesting then to see what the gauge reads but it may not too helpful as it only reads -0.5 bar. I have 86k on mine but did valves and guides ~3k ago.

The PLX digital gauge in the tach has a far wider scale for boost and Vac and is probably more accurate too. I see anywhere from 24-22 Hg Vac on decel and or throttle blip. The NHS gauge will certainly be a nice addition, especially to replace the worthless clock in my dash!

I tried contacting NHS twice about the estimated ship date, but have heard NOTHING from them, not a peep. Anyone else having this problem?

I talked to them early this week (23rd) b/c an 8th person joined the group. At that time they said, "Right now we are getting everything ready to make these gauges." So I would say we are still at least a week out.
Every correspondance I have had with them stated "approx. 2-3 weeks time of delivery" so they were very upfront about it.

I have never been a patient man myself....

Well for me its patience... or the lack there of.
Imagine me at Christmas time as kid, my parents are saints!

Anyway as for the order, they were aware that there are now 8 orders in the group and have not said there still is an outstanding balance.
I will contact them to make sure all of our funds have been received.

Man, if they were ready for pickup, I'd send my sister to get mine as she comes back from LA on Monday.
