Has anyone seen this gauge? looks like a little flashlight with a 37mm face.
Downside is that it's in BAR not PSI. And the numbers are red not blue.
Upside is that the sensor can be mounted in the engine bay with only a wire to the gauge.

If this even works, i have no idea where to put it. I'm thinking possibly next to the sunroof controls. and maybe not mount it at all... for $18 i'm a little suspicious, particularly of the accuracy, but thought i'd give a go.

you can get used to BAR,

hell my old subaru was in Mpa and conversion to psi was mPA x 145 = PSI

.07mPA =10 PSI
.1 mPA was about 14.5 psi (which was roughly 1 bar)

that said you can do better for a boost gauge for the R. I don't think it would look that great. the silver will really stand out. + the gauge is in red.

My Defi is in Bar..I like it.

1 Bar = 14.7 PSI I think.... 1.3 is like 18 PSI...Looks cool and I have a little red light that comes on when I hit my target boost, which is 1 bar...but I've been spiking to 1.2----1.3 ish
