What is your favorite boost gauge and mounting location in the SG interior?

I also would like to see some pictures of them mounted.

Thanks,

RLucky

I'll be using a BNA Solutions gauge pod for my SG5. I'll be running a oil temp, oil pressure, and a boost gauge, with the boost gauged in the middle, most likely.

I prefer a clean/stock looking gauge pod setup, versus the pillar mount. But that's just me.

Got my AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite -30/+20 Vacuum/Boost Gauge installed. I got a cheap GlowShift gauge cup, being I plan on upgrading in the future to a BNA Solutions gauge pod, so I decided not to dump a lot of money into a cup. Works great, I just wish it's base stem wasn't so tall.

I run an OEM boost gauge from an STI. Opened it up and removed the red "paint" sticker over the LED in it, and colored the LED green. Works and looks great. Only blocks the lower part of the fuel gauge. I use this more than anything else to find out if there are issues with the engine (like when it cuts boost, I can immediately tell and find out what may be the issue).
