Has anyone used any of the Greddy or Blitz boost guages?

Was looking at a mechanical PSI guage for my st205

Best place to get a boost guage?

Any information or links would be great.

I like the offerings from Stack, although to be fair any reasonably priced one will do the job. PSI or Bar depends on the way your brain works. :)

I have a preference for digital ones with a peak hold as it takes less time to look at the numbers and lets you know the highest recorded value.
For normal in car use pretty much none of them are very accurate anyhow - if you can live with an analogue gauge then a simple mechanical one saves a lot of messing about.

On looking at the options the stack does seem a nice simple and clear to read device with a sensible range and sweep :- http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/Product.d ... GwodatkOWA

Save your money over the Blitz/Greddy prices :-)

I got Horsham Dev to install one on my Skyline, they found the gauge was over reading by 0.1bar, Prosport I think the brand was.

They are a well respected outfit Dave, they do a lot of work on 350z's and are very visible on the forum sites. The thing that makes me go back is that they are the least pushy people I have ever met. I have had to put up with really poor efforts at upselling from the likes of Abbey Motorsports (spent nearly £800 on exhaust parts, fitting and remap and they still tried to upsell me £500 worth of brake replacements because my pads were almost halfway through). Jez who runs H-Dev simply listened intently to what I wanted, suggested improvements on how I could do it, and just went on and got on with it and talked me through what he had done. No up-selling, no nonsense, hugely knowledgeable on Jap cars - just what I want really.

The only downer is that their rolling road is just two wheel drive!
