      :lol: I'm sitting here imagining one of the stick type gauges popping up every time he goes into boost. It's a rather funny mental image.

          that would be sweeet. lets figure out how to hook that up.

          if that doesnt work, then a real boost gauge is still wanted.

            dude. i would rock that over a regular boost gauge any day.

            Edit: I'm sitting here thinking about it, I thought it might be a problem that when you're off of boost, the stick would still stick out, but it would get sucked back in from the vaccuum! do this.

                It wouldn't be that hard. You'd need a vacuum line that would fit securely over the end of the gauge and that you can connect to whatever boost signal source you want. Simple as that.

                If you do this, we're taking videos and putting them on YouTube for everyone to laugh at. :lol:

                        Just get an Autometer. Mine was about $46 (Z-Series). Came with vacuum line, fittings, everything you need except a cluster in which to mount it.
