Default Boost Guage

Im new to the forum and perhaps this is an old question..
I have a 2006 PT GT and I cant believe there is no boost gauge. Does anyone have any suggestions as to an after market boost gauge that is easily installed.

Thanks, Bill

The Aeroforce Intercepter. It can display over 100 parameters depending on the vehicle. It plugs into the OBD2 connector and can be mounted anywhere.

Mean Green, Thanks for the reply...
That gauge looks great.......just not sure how and where to mount it. I will be ordering it!

BTW.........a couple of years ago I joined a PT forum that cost me 35 bucks........is this the same forum?

Not the same.

You could do it the "old fashioned way" like so









Autometer mechanical boost gauge, in a dual pod.

Go to Harbor Freight (Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices). They sell a dayglow boost gauge, electronic oil pressure gauge, and a voltmeter for $20 each.

If you are playing with the boost I wouldn't want to trust my car to a $20 boost gauge that may or may not be accurate.

My only reason for wanting a boost gauge (besides the fact that every car I know of that has a factory installed turbo charger has one) is so I know the health of the turbo. By that I mean if when the car was new for example...I have 8 pounds of boost but the boost starts to go down....I know I have a problem.

Thats exactly the reason I put one in my car. I wanted to see the vac pressure and boost to see where the car is as it stands, and to let me know if anything is changed what makes a difference and what doesnt.
