stock boost gauge???

does anyone know how accurate the stock boost gauge is on a 2005 f250? i am looking to update gauges and i want: pyrometer, oil temp, coolant temp, if i go with a 3x pillar. if i go with a 4x pillar i would add the boost gauge, it is worth it. i have the zf6 manual tranny, and from what i have herd it's not really neaded on a manual, unless there is a better way to go.

its not worth the extra money, its either boosting or it isn't, the stock gauge is close enough.

The gauges you are looking at are a great idea, if you were looking to maybe add a 4th gauge I would highly suggest a fuel pressure gauge.

Let me know if you want some prices.
