Stupid question, is the boost gauge obstructed by the wiper lever, and does it obstruct the speedometer at all? I noticed it in the second video and really like the placement.
This is a pretty accurate photo of what I see from the driver's seat.



I a little bit of the boost gauge is blocked, but only the part that doesn't matter. The oil pressure gauge is blocked quite a bit. I can see it if I lean forward and look. It blocks a minimal amount of the OEM coolant temp gauge.

Doubt it. I'd like to keep the tranny in one piece as long as possible.

This tune did 438WHP on Airboy at 26psi.

I was on RS's dyno when I had the 20G XTR, stock motor and lower boost. It did 390WHP at 22psi. Same tune did 366WHP on Airboy. The new tune does 438WHP @ 26psi on Airboy. So, 438-366=72. And 72+390=462. Haha. I am not making this up. Very odd coincidence. In reality, I think it would probably do low/mid 400's at RS.
