Boost Guage?

I am installing a fuel preassure guage,(under hood, shraeder valve mod), and these two, an EGT ga. and tranny temp ga. on pillar pod. My question is since all I do is tow a 12000 lb T Trl.,no racing etc. do I also need a boost guage?

Will any liquid filled preassure guage work? Grainger has one, a 100psi for like 13 bucks. Does that sound right considering the prices I see on other sites.

100 Psi for a boost guage? nah, dont go that high, you wont ever hardly see the needle move. Go with a autometer 30 PSI guage or similar brand. DiProcal, Stewart warner, ect....
You truck is only gonna see 30 PSI max with a tuner. any more than 28 PSI and the turbo is on borrowed time.

I think he was reffering to the fuel pressure guage.

Here's an alternative;
Liquid Filled Pressure Gauge

Anything rated for like oils and such from an industrial supplier will work too, it'll probably a better gauge in construction and accuracy if that matters. I'd get a gauge from Grainger.

Rick got himself a really nice one for under the hood, I like it more than I like the Marshall one ITP sells.
