A boost gauge is a pressure gauge that shows the pressure of the air manifold in an internal combustion engine, or a turbocharger or supercharger. They are commonly placed on the bumper, on the side pillar of the driver, or on a slot for the radio. All turbochargers and superchargers are engine-driven air compressors - respectively electronically-driven or mechanically driven - which provide various levels of boost depending on engine speed, load, etc. Fairly frequently within a given list of various boost pressures, there is indeed a powerband which is an aid to performance cruising to be aware of when that power band is confronted, in the same way, a driver wants to be conscious of the engine's rotational speed.
The most widely used auto boost gauges for gas-powered vehicles with stock turbos are 15 or 30 PSI boost/vacuum. Many gas vehicles can produce higher levels of pressure levels and necessitate a 35 PSI or higher car boost measurement.
If you're a diesel engine driver with a predominantly stock truck, you'll be best suited to the 35 PSI truck boost gauge, which allows a user to view stock pressure levels around 20 PSI, but it also has the capacity to track up to 35 PSI if you finely adjust the turbo. A new diesel truck may report higher rates of boost pressure and would most profit from using a reading gauge of 60 PSI.
Our mechanically driven boost gauges obtain pressure readings through with a vacuum tube that goes straight from the gauge to the intake manifold of the vehicle, while our electronically controlled boost gauges use a detector installed directly at the intake manifold which sends a signal to the gauge.
For any vehicle running a turbo or supercharger, boost gauges can be necessary. Vivid Racing offers a variety of electronically and mechanically driven boost gauges through which you can choose the boost or boost/vacuum gauge that will best allow you to monitor your vehicle's boost and/or compression levels. If you are searching for a Diesel Boost Gauge, Turbo Gauge, or another Gauge-style from our catalog, Vivid Racing will certainly have the sort of Boost Gauge you are searching for.
