For those that "upgraded," ideas on stock boost gauge?

Postby toayoztan » Mon Dec 05, 2011 6:47 am

So, going MAP with the AEM EMS-4, the stock boost gauge will be "dead" and not doing a thing.

What did you guys do about this...leave it? Rig it up to read pressure vs vac? Replace your whole cluster with GTS?

Just curious.

I was thinking I would mount an aftermarket one over it. I don't know that it would function any better than it did for boost. :shrug:

I just blanked mine off, it sucks anyway :P

You can fit some smaller gauges in there with some modifications, or if your using AEM ems, you can use the serial gauges to read outputs off the EMS directly

So cool :P

my plan is to get a slim gauge, and mount it in front of the stock boost gauge. same deal with water temp.

Stock gauge still works with an AEM installed. Still as slow and still as inaccurate.

what makes the stocker so slow and innacurate? If it's just the sensor, why not get an improved sensor and rig it up to the stock gauge indicator? I think that would be pretty cool for BPU type setups..

Cuz aftermarket can look sexy if slim fitted. ;) and why keep it stock. Mods are sick in any way. I think lol

Because it is an electronic gauge, it must have a fast response compared to mechanical one. Good idea!
