If you have a turbocharged engine, installing a boost gauge is a great modification. Boost gauges can read boost level, and many read engine vacuum. Whether you’re installing a digital boost gauge, or a manual boost gauge, the installation process is very similar. The AEM gauge we are using here also has a boost controller built into the gauge. But we are only focusing on the boost gauge in this video.
The ability to monitor both boost and engine vacuum is vital on a performance car. There are even some cars that come with a boost gauge from the factory. If you are adding a turbo like we did the the GTI, it is a must. Proper installation is important. I truly believe that the routing of vacuum lines, and wiring is even more important to long term performance.
