I will be running a novi 2k on my carb'd setup using the Paxton Box. I already have the boost ref. regulator, but i can't find a fuel guage that fits the bill. The only ones i can find are the 0/15 and the 0/100.

The 0/15 won't read high enough with around 12 pounds of boost.

The 0/100 won't read in usable incraments, ie I will have no idea what the preasure is actually doing!

So here is my delema....what are you guys using out there?

I would like it to be around a 2 5/8 size so i can mount it outside on my wiper cowl.

PLEASE HELP!

Yeah, it sucks doesn't it. I haven't found anything that will work. Someone out there must make something.

I have looked at the Dakota Digital ones, but i am not sure how acurate they are, or if they can be outside mounted...and readible with the sun.

Same thing here too. Brent over at TurboMustangs.com said
did have a 0-100 gauge on there but also tried a boost gauge that was 0-30 psi as well. Autometer told me that the 0-30 psi boost gauge would work just as good anyways.
I havent called autometer yet to make sure of it but I trust his word.

So it really works to run a boost guage...i just don't see how it can handle fuel, when its made to handle boost you know...

The fuel doesn't eat things inside?

I run a Norskog digital, $55. It's a bit cheesy, and definitely needs a clean power source for an accurate reading. Once hooked up good, it's pretty sensitive (shows pressure diffs from voltage changes via underdrive pulleys). I've had it upto 75psi and as low as 30. Numbers reads much nicer (i.e. accurate) than a dial swinging from 0-100... I was thinking about switching out my analog temp & boost gauges to digital as well.

Only problem is response time, it's around 1/2sec delay or less I think (haven't measure exactly). I think a mechanical f.p. is likely to react faster. It's 2-1/16 gauge, has a electronic sensor that mounts on the fuel rail (2 wires to the guage), so it's mounted inside.
