A while ago I saw a member here that had a boost gauge that was very very nicely re done, the face was of the dial was reprinted and probably re calibrated so that it would read higher boost pressure, and it was in the factory placement, also it looked factory. Where or how did that person do it? I don't think it came form "Speed Hut" Does anyone have a link to that build?

I have one of these, it's a 46mm hks gauge with the face plate from the factory boost guage hotglued around the gauge face lol, then you have to neatly drill out and make it fit into the factory cluster.

Basically find a 46mm oldschool guage and retro fit it, you'll have to steal power from somewhere else but routing the vacuum line should be easy

No problem. I am wondering myself now where did that gauge face come from in the bottom of that #10 post. It sure does look very clean.
