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.

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 :D
*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 :eek:
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!
