Where did you find the 20psi gauge??? I've been looking all over for that exact gauge, but everyone has the 30psi one. I don't ever plan on running much over ~14psi or so, so what do I need the 30psi gauge for, its useless. Also, what did that run you?

Well, running 20 lbs of boost on stock internals won't make it last too long.
Good luck getting 20psi out of that blower... I'm not so sure the M90 would push that much air. However, you can run 20psi on stock internals, just not with the M90. Some people are running 18psi on stock internals with the Gen V non-intercooled though! So 20psi intercooled on the Gen V M90 and it might be possible.

I wanna see pics of that gauge burried Sol!!!!
I should take a vid of the stock boost gauge in my STE. It goes up to 15psi, and at 10psi the thing is pegged (obviously its not accurate at all), so the thing goes off the end of the dash with ~12psi. Its quite funny. And it moves so violently its crazy.

I was kidding about the 20 psi in my engine. That would be sweet though.

Maybe thats where I saw it, in my eternal search to find SOMETHING to keep me interested in my Aurora, I noticed the 140mph gage, thought it was cool.
