What'* wrong with the boost gauge that came with the car?

I added one to my supercharged SLE, but only because it didn't come with one. Only SSEi'* got the boost gauge.

The PCV is under a little square cover on the top of your SC. Held by two screws. Should be black and say 'PCV'.

Your pulley won't exceed the stock indicated boost.

the stock gauge will always be off because its an elecrical unit not a mechanical one, but its close enough....even the Rogue 12 sec street driven bonneville uses the stock gague
