I now wish I had ran the wiring a little differently but I'm still very happy with it.<p>I have the light programmed set to hit at a sustained 20 PSI.<p>I like the non-pod look as well. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/Gauge009.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae247/trawson/Gauge001.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

Re: Finally Put The New Boost Gauge In, Love The New Look (StealthyS60R)

Damn, just realized in the pic that you can't see that I've mounted its remote program/recall button in the pillar cover just to the left of the gauge.<BR><BR>

I just got back from a drive and was pleased at how many time I got to see my 19+ PSI light glowing. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Also glad to see after upgrading my intercooler and new sensors I'm usually pushing between 18 and 19 PSI all the way through the power band, not counting those times it pushes past the 21 PSI limit of the readout of course, lol.

LOL, there was a time my car was bone stock except for larger tires and a tune.<p>Oh, how the time are changing. Will be getting a new cat back exhaust next week so its getting less stealthy by the week, lol.<p>I do love my little snickers though, despite my phone/carputer project I'm working on I'll probably never ditch my ScanGauge II.

Re: FV-QR (silverbullitt850)

Lots of cool stuff, but they do a much better job of laying it all out than I can. The only thing of importance it doesn't get that I wish it did is boost pressure. That's why I originally bought it but I still liked it anyways.<p><A HREF="http://www.scangauge.com/products/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.scangauge.com/products/</A>

As my IAT shows, the cold aluminum heatsink of my aftermarket FMIC and plumbing was still warming up, lol.<p>And I do need to get my windows tinted, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Looks cool; I have a suggestion: a black rubber or plastic grommet around the wires where they go through the unfinished hole will give a nice neat appearance.
