Re: Guages or not??

You could tell them you tow a lot and want the extra reassurance of mechanical gauges. The boost gauge on the dash is not accurate anyway from what I have seen.

Re: Guages or not??

ok i like the way the gauges looks but how often do they get stolen cuz i looked into them to day and they are OUTRAGOUSLY priced, i am not sure i can justify spending that much when the edge is 400. unless yall know were to get them cheep but still good and reliable.

I have sat in the truck with Dunbar twice on the dyno. The DashDAQ always says 35-38 psi when the the stock needle is pegged out at 40. That is what is odd to me since they both read the same. I never really compared when I had a mechanical boost gauge. The mechanical one did read boost quicker and it was a 60 psi gauge so I could see how high it would go.

try glowshift gauges. they're dirt cheap and have been working well for a lot of people.
