need a wider range boost gauge

what i need in a replacement boost gauge:

boost AND vacuum
must read a min of 35psi (no more than 45)
preferably a black gauge
great if it can light up green

ok GO!

Glow shift just made a new "Max tow" series gauge. You can get 30, 35, or 60lbs of boost with a vaccuum reading. Lights up green, has a needle and a digital readout, and is only $80 with free shipping. I just bought one that is 30lbs. They are perfect.

And you're welcome

AEM Digital Boost Gauge -30 to 35psi 30-4406

and if you don't like digital
AEM Analog Boost Gauge -30 to 35PSI w/Analog Face - AEM Part# 30-5132

They also make a 50
AEM Boost Gauge -30 - 50psi

If the price is too high you may be able to search fleabay

When I did mine, I used one from a Ford Excursion. Sold it to Tboy after my '96 was totaled.

eguages say that they have a single pod for the excursion for $25. I have bought 2 pillar pods and 6 or 7 gauges through them over the years and I can't seem to beat their pricing.

I had AEM gauges in my volvo and I like the look. They were lit just right for the dash, and the non-digi gauges responded well to hooking up to the dimmer switch as well. I wonder if you could hook them up to the blackout button on our 900's (provided you don't get the one with built it boost control). I think that would be pretty slick.

I just wired a separate switch that took care of the back-lighting when I didn't want it on. But they were for just backlit gauges, not digital ones. Wasn't as slick as tapping into the Blackout feature, but worked in its own way.

I vote AEM analogs too. I have them recessed in my center vent and they look factory at night. The green matches perfect.

3+ years of use with their boost gauges, 'only' at 19psi and no issues at all.
