warning light for boost guage

as the title says, anybody done this? sort of like a shift light for your boost guage, set to come on at a pre-set boost level. here's the idea, standing on the brake building boost at the light, hit 10 psi, lights on, launch. autometer has the the light, sensor switch, etc. just wanted to see if it was on anybodys rig.

Seems pointless to me. When i do a boosted launch i don't launch at any specific boost PSI, i just hold hard on the brake, and floor the accelerator, then once it builds the max boost it will build like that, usually around 21 PSI, i let off the brake.

Id really like one for EGT's. Set it to go off at 1250 or 1300 or so.
