    Three hours to install. Was it worth it? Well, it works a helluva lot better than the OEM boost gauge, and I have more room on my center console for other crap like airbag switches. Remember: Bitches love switches.

    The one that was in there was electric and SUXORED. Aside from having no numbers (just a + and - to denote boost and vacuum), it had lag. Yes, the fucking gauge had LAG. You'd hear the turbo and would feel the boost in the seat of your pants before the needle would budge off the full vacuum mark. The needle would stay at "full boost" between shifts and for almost two seconds after you let off the throttle. This isn't just a bad gauge, it's the way every AllTrac boost gauge works. They suck ass. If I had to do it over again, I would have used a black face gauge, but this one was free.

    question though, will the fuel needle get stuck on the bottom right of the boost gauge, it doesnt look like there is a large clearance area

    No, the needle doesn't even reach that far, but even if it did, it sits almost and 1/8" off the face.

    That's pretty stealth, you should have gotten a black gauge. I'm pretty sure you can get those, oh well, too late now. :thumbsup:
