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.

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.

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.

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.
