View Full Version : $10 boost gauge

Last night I was hanging out with Craig (Blitzkrieg) and Thomas, at Pavillions...well it was a crappy turnout, mostly ford probes there.
Anyways we wanted something to do so we decided to rig up a boost gauge for me. We found a 24 hour autozone and picked up 1/4" tees, teflon tape, 5/16" hose, and a tubing kit, all for about $10. We used a 1.25" tire pressure gauge, and teed into the WG actuator pressure line. The tubing was run up to the drivers door, and the gauge is held in place by a zip-tie on the heat/AC vent. WORKS GREAT!! It holds steady at 7psi, and spikes up to about 11-12 when shifting. I'll be taking some pics to post up soon.

Dave, Ken; whatsup guys? Just wondering what you guys might think of organizing a 240 meet/bbq before the end of the month? I was thinking that we could have it up in Tanto National Forest since its a deathy drive up there and we could pretty much bring as many people as we like.. Lemme know what you guys think? Personally, I think it'd be well worth it.. Hell, we dont even have to limit it to 240's really.. I think we should just try and get any/all Nissans out there.. NX's, Sentra's, 300's,etc... I think it'd be awesome! http://www.freshalloy.com/

I'm down with anything.
Just to let you guys know, I'm moving back to my mom's house at the end of the semester. Going to take atleast 1 term off of school...maybe won't go back. I just need some time off to catch up and figure out what I want to do.


Ken, Yeah Craig and I can document the boost gauge install for your website.
