Default Any suggestions for a good 0-50 Boost/ EGT dual gauge?

Looking for a 0-50 Boost/ EGT combo gauge

Love the data logging capabilities of the Autometer ones but don't like the fact that they do not have dual gauges.

Any suggestions for a good 0-50 Boost/ EGT dual gauge?

Any thoughts on this one? Superchips Lazer Boost & EGT gauge seems to offer some of the same limits functionality as the Autometer but they offer both parameters in one gauge

Tnx, I do have McNally right now and it is a consideration but I have had some issues with mine. I may end up going that route. I like the bells and whistles of the Autometer thought. Too bad they do not do a combo gauge.

Ask Justin about his Isspro setup. He can actually log right now (and log A LOT), I would still need to add a box for my Autometer setup to log anything.

Isspro makes a 0-60 psi. I have a set in the truck and really like them.

Auber instruments combo gauge:

You can't see boost and egt at the same time, but it records what the max value was for each function. The egt is very fast acting and a light comes on when it hits a set value. For the money, i am very happy with it.

Those aeroforce gages seem like a lot in a little package. Too bad it's just not a little more "analog" looking. I'm a sucker for needles, what can I say

I have the above gauge and I like it, records peaks while key power is applied and resets when the car is off.

It does have something that spins inside and hence generates a bit of heat but nothing like a head unit, as for the noise just be aware that it might present itself under certain circumstances. programmable via Rs-232 cable or touch screen. Think I have had it for a few years and no issues.

I was looking at the same SuperChips boost/EGT gauge about a week ago as a replacement for my flaky McNally. But, what I could not tell is if the SuperChips uses the pressure transducer like the McNally, which would make for easy plug-n-play, or does it use a tube like my old Stewart gauge. Do you know, Pierre?

The Superchips/MSD uses a transducer, little black box with a short vacuum line attached then a wiring harness goes to the gauge. The thermocouple is I think is standard and has wires that go to the back of the gauge.

Superchips starts at 600? Doesn't that seem a little high to start with, if you cool down before shutting down? I like the looks and concept, would probably want it to start around 300 though.
