      Finally Put The New Boost Gauge In, Love The New Look

      I now wish I had ran the wiring a little differently but I'm still very happy with it.

      I have the light programmed set to hit at a sustained 20 PSI.

      I like the non-pod look as well.

      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.

      I initially misspelled remote, lol.

      If you hold it for a few seconds it recalls max and min pressures and with other special push sequences you can program the warning light to go off at specified boosts. I just got back from a drive and was pleased at how many time I got to see my 19+ PSI light glowing.

      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.

      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.

      I do love my little snickers though, despite my phone/carputer project I'm working on I'll probably never ditch my ScanGauge II.

      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.

      It was really in the high 80s but the way my car was parked the ambient sensor was getting a little extra warm. As my IAT shows, the cold aluminum heatsink of my aftermarket FMIC and plumbing was still warming up, lol.

      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.

      Is what they refer to as fuel rate actually the air / fuel ratio? I did not see A/F as a measured parameter but I an thinking it is just being called something else

      Thanks

      I can attest to that. Stays around the 14.5 mark when cruising (or 1450 on the gauge), drops to 28.0 when in gear off the throttle, and zooms to 12 or so when in boost.

      Yeppers, between the boost gauge and WBO2 A/F gauge I'm a pretty happy camper instrumentation wise. The only thing that will be better is being able to tap my phone into the CANBUS.

      Sucks that I've been so busy lately, I haven't made any progress on that project at all for over a month now.

      If you have access to the MAP sensor through the scangauge, it appears you can convert it to boost in psi using x-gauge and the following formula website (depending on output units):

      There is no access to the MAP sensor with the scangauge. I've tried. An actual needle moving works much better anyway.

      Same thing here, the MAP setting returns no data I don't think MAP is reported through the OBDII in our cars, If someone does figure out how to display this on their scan guage, please share

      For another $25 you could even add the R logo instead of the S60R text like I did.

      Bump for those who might be looking for toys to keep tab on your R baby. Can't tell you how many times being able to read any of my system parameters have helped me diagnose a problem.
