Earls32 Like Jgrove998 said it all depends on your setup. If you plan on going higher than 20psi might as well get the 30psi gauge, there the same price.

Magus2727 I would like to get an electronic boot controller. But plan on putting it in the glove box or some were not noticeable I only plan on changing my boot levels when on the track.

30 PSI is only in the far far future. I plan on starting out small (4-5)psi and slowly ramping up the boost.

Jgrove998 The boost levels would depend on your setup; every setup would have different boost levels for the desired power level.

If your looking to 30 psi seriously in the future I would invest in a quality electronic boost controller that would display your boost at any level.

Boost Gauge Range

In my build I am looking for a HP range of about 300-350. From looking at peoples dyno posts in the sticky (which not sure why people neglect to put their boost in the post) it looks like around 14-17 PSI would provide the HP gains I am looking for. So would a 20psi gauge be the best gauge to get?

Or since I will likely get addicted to the additional power go with the 30psi gauge so if/when I go with a return fuel system and a few other upgrades to get over the 350ish HP mark it would be one less thing I need to replace?

Thanks.
