Default Boost gauge necessary?

If i plan on running a cobb stage 2 and never touching it again, do i still really need to put down the money for a boost gauge?

Default monitor MAP values instead

You can also use an OBD-2 tool like pocket logger to view or log MAP values. I don't have a boost gauge and currently have the Cobb stg 2. It's probably safer to just log the values during a pull than watch a gauge anyway.

it's probably safer to know if your overboosting when it happens.....

c'mon, they're cheap enough, and they give you a VERY critical piece of information.
