There are a bunch of them, and some manufacturers make both mechanical and electronic like Defi. The BF series that most people use are electronic, but they are 60mm so they are on the larger side when it comes to putting them into the vents, and the $90 gauge that they use to sell was mechanical, but i'm not sure if it was discontinued. Some autometer's are electronic, others are mechanical, but i'm not a fan of their gauges. Greddy makes electronic ones also. The list goes on. With that said, I still like the gauge that you have installed so I wouldn't sweat it too much.

I'm gonna dyno my car this week and see what i'm putting down...i think my lack of power through the butt dyno could be caused by lack of traction...first gear is useless at 50% or more throttle...2nd gear pulls the strongest...but even then, the car would fishtail


I'm not sure I am following the issue of this thread. My 335 does not run Procede.

I have traction in first gear and can run WOT once rolling. I can chirp the tires in second gear but have never felt a fishtail as a likely result in second under WOT.

It sounds like your Procede'd car is substantially faster than my non-Procede'd car. Maybe the butt-dyno already forgot what stock feels like?

Then you don't need a boost gauge to tell you you're not making much...
