    AEM make a nice one. It's a electronic control and gauge all in one. I don't have it but I will be getting it. It's around $330 tho..

    I personally would not pickup an aem. pricey, and they don't use any boost control strategies, basically a manual boost controller you can adjust in your car. (nothing against AEM I like them, just not this product. I have an AEM ems, and aem gauges in my car)

    Almost any boost controller besides that would be decent. bump the boost and have fun. they are pretty easy to install as well. I had a cheap EBC I bought for under $100 and got some great use out of it. It was a blitz sbc II I believe. Thing kicked ass. I wish I still had it for some reason, but I control everything with my AEM ems now.

    I have the GReddy Profec B spec 2 and like it. It was inexpensive and is simple to control. You just need to have it translated from things like gain and set gain.

    I've considered the Greddy Profec personally.

    The profec displays boost as well as being much more controllable.

    Does the profec let you set boost correction at certain rpm ranges?

    It has a gain feature that can help reduce or increase boost fade or creep.

    I'm a fan of my greddy profec b spec 2.

    I don't like the aem because you have to run a vacuum line all the way to wherever you mount the gauge.
