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.

is it worth buying a new boost gauge to put in the pillar?

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.
