How many hp does it add?

Also, do you have an AEM sticker on your door now? I hear those double the efficacy of AEM mods.

Finally, I'm loving the gauge options provided via my piggyback. So nice to be able to trade something useless like fuel for boost/afr.

Why not just use the gauge hijacking your JB4 offers?

IMO a gauge should only be the in-dash ones from the tunes, or the P3 air vent one. Everything else looks out of place a bit

Yeah loosing your gauges is dumb. I think if you're FBO + Meth or Single or RB turbo's external gauges is acceptable.

HPF uses them on their race car's, that justifies it for me.

If? When? what do those words mean?!?!?

If you drove a 335 with a tune you would never type/say either of those words in conjunction with buying a tune.

it's a no brainer....

I can understand that. I'm not against it, but it just seems a bit excessive IMO. The meth hijacking doesn't need to stay on constantly. I check mine periodically just to confirm it's functioning 100%.

That vent gauge looks great though!

I am having a custom heads up display built for my car that will show my boost (or can code it for mph, etc. The display will be built in behind the NAV in between where the defrost vents are. Should be a USA first... I have never seen it on here, and I assume if someone has done it before, I would have seen it on here...

That would be sweet.

I believe HKS has (or had) a unit that allowed you to use your factory navi or any screen the way you described. If you have the iDrive adapted to display video content, then the only piece needed is the unit from HKS. It would be kinda like the GTR look. IIRC, it allowed you to toggle between 6 different guages or view all at once.

And it displayed on the windshield? I'll have to look into it...

yeah i got sick of being worried about oil temps etc..., the ashtray replacement looks great, but hard to see, I would keep the steering column set up except that even though you can keep your dash gauges, you cant see them, I ordered the p3 about 3 weeks ago so it should be here any day...i hope

Had those 2 back in the day.

The real boost gauge is actually better then any other digital gauges for this car causes its actually reading boost in the intake manifold.

The others are reading pre throttle body from the TMAP, not nearly as accurate, especially at part throttle where the throttle blade isnt really open.
