Anyone has an ECS vent boost gauge here?

As the title says... Just wondering what you think about it.
I'd like a boost gauge but don't feel like spending too much on the digital version... Have too many other mods on the list

Yea not really...
What's the cost on the P3? It's completely plug-n-play?

Completely plug and play on N55. About 400 clams, but tells you all kinds of info-just a few: coolant temp, IAT, throttle, boost, 0-60 times. What engine do you have?

^ which is awesome, but...... how will it work with a piggy-back tune tied into the CANBUS?

I have an N55. Have a stage 2 JB4 with my temp gauge hi-jacked to read boost. Really just looking to add a simple boost gauge so I can have my temp gauge back.

Swap it to your fuel gauge and then have range displayed over MPG. I've been running that for a year and haven't looked back, I find the range indicator to be more useful than the fuel gauge anyway, it's actually calculated very well

Good point... Didn't think of just using the range as a fuel gauge.
Still might spend the $200 and do the ECS vent pod tho... Kinda like the look
