I don't have gauges so I can't answer your question. But even with what you said, having the gauges can't hurt... Boost already helped you and who knows maybe your AFR gauge will save you one day when you happen to take a glance and see AFRs leaner than you'd like them to be? I'm just saying though.. For OPs sake

i have the aem failsafe so 2 in 1. easy to look at. plus my tune is pretty consistent so the gauge doesnt change that much. plus mine are mounted on the dash(i hate it) and it makes it harder but i still manage to look at them fine.

My tune is spot on... 11.1 throughout most of the pull, but when I go WOT I don't look at the gauge - it's a suicide. Unless I am in 5th gear.

You installed gauges before an exhaust? Please tell me more about your extensive modifications.
Calm down man i'm just giving you a hard time.

Gauges aren't necessary most of the time, hopefully all of the time. Kinda like seatbelts. Doesn't mean i'm about to cruise around without it.

Can't watch them all the time, but it's nice to have it always available for a glance.

Please help me with this one. When you say 11.1 throughout, it doesn't flutter or fluctuate? What gauge if you don't mind me asking and digital or analog?

What's the dig on him not having a boost gauge? Cobb's boost value is exactly what's sent by the MAP sensor of the car. And Cobb logs. As far as I'm concerned, that's better than most boost gauges out there.

Is your pro tune locked? If not there're plenty of e-tuners could maybe adjust the WG duty cycle so it doesn't hit so hard with colder temps.

AFR gauge... While driving like a normal DD you notice that your AFR is not 14.7... It's at 16... Bet it stops you from WOT and you log your car to find out why your going lean... Or you go WOT and you glance over and you should be sub 12 but your 12.5... No knock light but again bet you let off and start asking questions... All things that can help to find issues before they become really really bad... Or how about at idle ur at 11.6 and your running a cat...

To me AFR is more important then the boost... Maybe you don't look at it every mile u drive but I bet you glance every once an awhile and will know your car better then u did without it.

Problem is, my tune is supposed to be at 28 psi. Can this damage the turbo or worse, the engine?
Things to note: I was custom tuned by COBB with a 400s kit, FP Green, yada yada yada. My tune was done on a hot day. Cooler weather now = higher boost right? I'll admit I got ahead of myself and did the big upgrades before I learned what I was actually doing and Im still in the learning process. Please be constructive if Im dumb.
33 PSI was BTACK working at COBB when u got tuned?
