Question Need help

Please don't get angry guys because I know nothing about anything & do not own an evo..but my boyfriend has an '08 Evo X & I want to buy him an analog turbo boost gauge for xmas. I want it to be a surprise so I'm afraid to ask him too many questions, although I probably already have. I know he wants it above the dash on the upper left side. I want to get him the best one there is. Any suggestions?? THANK YOU!

we will need your budget and how you think he would want to mount it.

Since gauges can run upwards of 500 each, it would help to know that info.

Best analog boost gauge? They are all pretty similar as long as they are reliable. I'm willing to bet he'd be quite thrilled to see an AEM boost gauge for xmas.

I would suggest getting a single gauge pod a-pillar from DSG but it probably wont be ready by christmas. Buy him the AEM analog gauge which will be a few hundred bucks and get on the waiting list for the gauge pod from DSG. That should be plenty to keep him happy.

There are other companies that make analog but AEM matches the stock dash almost exactly. The only difference is AEM uses a red needle where our car uses a white.

^ I second that

Sounds like you're a great girlfriend! The AEM Boost Gauge is very good, we're using the Analog actually ourselves. You are able to swap the front piece to either have a black or white face so he can customize it to his preference. While the Pillar itself won't be ready for a bit as our current batch is filled up, as soon as it is we will ship it out to him so he can get it installed. The Pillar & Boost Gauge combo is 374.36 and you can grab it here. The Gauge itself will ship out immediately.

If you have any questions please feel free to send me a private message or email me at [email protected]



Analog boost gauge faceplate options (included in box)





Digital Boost Gauge Options (Included in box) -- The good thing about the digital gauge is that it displays a digital signal in the center and an analog sweeping needle in the circumference.



Please note that the black image above is for representation only as it is similar, but not the same gauge.
