Boost Gauge

We fully plan on tuning the kit to tighter tolerances in the future, and we just wanted to see what was going on with our new parts, so we added an Auto Meter wideband O2 gauge (PN 5778) and an Auto Meter boost gauge (PN 5701). With the boost gauge, we can monitor how much boost we get (about 7 pounds) at what point in the RPM (all in by about 2300 RPM). And by watching the wideband gauge we can make sure we aren't running too lean at any point to avoid burning pistons or otherwise damaging the engine.
