Default boost question

How do you check to see how much boost your car is running and how do you up how much boost your car will run. What are some other cheap and easy performance upgrades that you do to a 92 ssei. thanks for the help.

The rightmost gauge on your dash should be a boost gauge.

You can put a smaller pulley on the supercharger to get more boost. Being a 92, I'd suggest a 2.25" from Pulley Boys. Checkout the ricepipe thread in Performance and Brainstorming for a good intake idea. You might also look into a high flow catalytic convertor from Carsound/Magnaflow. 2.5" inlet/outlet. From eBay is about $50, and 30 or 40 to get installed at an exhaust shop.
