What are the benefits of electronic over mechanical for boost gauges?

One of the benefits is that you do not have to run a vacuum line into the cabin of the car. The electronic module sits in the engine bay and you just run the cable to the gauge, so they are MUCH easier to install.

The gauge will also record the peak boot that you made (which is reviewable at the push of a button), and you can also set a warning light to go off at a certain boost level (settable to what ever you want).

There is always a hot debate whether or not electrics are more accurate/reliable than mechanicals... so I will leave that one alone.

They use an "around the dial" illumination, much like the stock Lamco boost gauge. I have the bulbs green to match the WRX, but you can change the bulb color to whatever you want by using a bulb condom or led (there are also other means). I can take a picture tonight if you want.

Probably should take a picture for the main thread that you have the sale on. Dunno if I will make you an offer though due to the 15 psi max and my target of 16 psi. I'd like something that reads 20 psi so I know if I'm overboosting.

Have you tried posting this in some other forums in your area that have cars with under 15 psi boost levels? (don't ask me which ones because I haven't got a clue) I don't see why this wouldn't sell quickly for those folks...it looks great!

I will take some pics tonight and post them on both threads. I am not sure what the FXT and LGT run boost wise, but it is not a bad idea throwing a line over in those forums and see if anyone is interested.
