What does the turbo gauge do, exactly? I'm considering having one of these installed at the dealer, but wonder what is the benefit. That, and is the factory turbo gauge a good one.

The turbo gauge displays how much "boost" your turbo is making. It can be thought of as a monitoring device in that once you learn the car, you'll know how much boost you should be making under those circumstances. The OEM boost gauge pod is somewhat acceptable IMO, but it apears to measure in bar vs. psi.

searh google for howstuffworks and then from the site search on turbo

the factory boost guage actually reads in mega pascals or something like that. For us Americans we normally like PSI, in.HG. or Bar.
