Rixster (the old version). Just looks great at night; I love watching the boost.

Any tuned car should always have a boost gauge to make sure your still on target

I really like the in dash boost gauge for the jb4. Easy to read and I don't have some ricey looking gauge somewhere. The invent ones look nice but I wouldn't want to waste the money when the Jb4 already has one built in

Dunno about looking down at it, but I like seeing the bars max out from the corner of my eye

I use the rixster vented boost gauge and the highjacked fuel gauge via tune does anyone notice that under slight boost that these two values differ? I noticed when the rixster is still in vacuum say -1 or -2 that the fuel gauge is showing 1 or 2 lbs any specific reason for this?

Edit: nvm read a post earlier in this thread that describes everything

I just got a Kiwi tonight and gave it a try with the Torque app. Seems to work well on my N55.
