Boost Gauge On Rides with Tuning Boxes

Hi,

Does anyone here have problems reading boost via an OBD boost gauge on N55 E92 with a tuning box such as Vishnu installed?

Keep in mind boost read via obd will always be DME perceived boost when using a piggyback (Procede, JB4)

I use my p3 gauge using one of its analog input to tap on the MAP sensor (before the Procede) which gives the real boost to my gauge.

Alright.

Thanks so much for all your inputs. Looks like analog is the way to go...
