Where can one pick up a VDO boost gauge upto 15psi max.
And a pilar console for driver side mounting.
Any ideas /contacts?
p.s also where can I find a blow off valve supplier/contact.
p.s.s Is there a purpose (other then sound) for having blow off valve when running under 6psi?
Let me know your thoughts guys.
Thanks

all turbo cars have blow off valves, it relieves excess pressure when you are not accelerating. or some thing like that.

i had a 2001 1.8t jetta, it came with a plastic blow off valve, and it was running at 4-5 psi. i bought a boost controller to 14.5 psi, and they told me to get a aftermarket bov to handle the pressure. the aftermarket one was made out of aluminum(not sure about spelling).

I say get a Bypass valve, it's more effective since it dumps the air back into the intake rather than wasting it into the atmosphere.

But if you like the sounds of BOV's go for it. You're not really running a high psi setup so you should be fine.

I'm grabbing the boost guage this week and
will throw it in my exist console but rather have it
on the A pilar. By pass valve will have to wait a bit.
Thanks for the info, guys.
p.s Windsor=pay up...
