Boost gauge for the ICTDI?

Is there any member who fitted a boost gauge in their oil-burner? Could be usefull when driving the car with a cold engine to avoid to early useage of the turbo and ofcourse for the cool factor.

Most of these OBDII port readers for Android and iPhone include the boost gauge for turbo cars.

I had a boost gauge in my tdi golf. Was designed for a tdi, had no negative pressure on it!!!

THINK it was made by a company called newsouth, or something similar.

I have ( sort of )!

Using wireless (wifi not bluetooth) OBDII port reader and the iPhone app "Rev"

OBDII reader was £50 ish
The app is £27.99
I got a little stand that sits beside the main cluster for £10 (Halfrauds)

Totally worth it
The app can be set with a couple of colour choices, This one is a perfect match for the CTDI cluster!

I'll bang some pictures up tomorrow when its daylight of the set-up whilst its working so you can see how it all looks; until then i've attached a screen shot of how i've got the app set-up
*ignore the readings, this is whilst no info is being fed to the app so it's in a blank state*

I did my research into it matey, i know what you mean !


The seeker pod, holds 3 gauges and fits the dash nicely costs approx £300 IIRC (Touge can get this, maybe SumoPower can too)

Then there's the gauges, I found a nice looking set of 3 stepper gauges for £150 ish
Black background & fascia, Blue backing LED & red lit needles

Obviously you could use the generic singular pods for a couple £ each for nice looking ones

I hope this (little) bit of info ^ is of some use
The cost just couldn't be justified in the end though !


The set-up i've got takes 30 seconds to get turned on and working
-Plug in OBDII
-Open app


The advantage with the OBDII app is the fact that i cant change what info i want shown at any time and swap the gauges to show other info!
Obviously the ability to use in any other car is useful too!

Yeah that's the conclusion i ended up at

So i went for the more sensible option

Don't get me wrong, you can get cheaper gauges!
You could get a decent single gauge and pod for £45 IIRC

Hope that helps!
