I was wondering if anyone is using a ScangaugeII for keeping track of and using it as a boost gauge? If so what are your impressions so far.

Yes. I am using an older ScanGauge2. I have to send it in for an update, because its older, to be able to display boost pressure. Currently I have it displaying Manifold Air Pressure. It tracks the MAP great but you have to do some simple math to know boost pressure. Basically I subtract atmospheric pressure (roughly 15psi here at sea level) from the reading to know what the actual boost is. Once I get off of my asth and send it in for the update it'll be perfect requiring no math on my part.

Thank you for the reply. I have an older ScanGaugeII that I use in my 1999 Mustang GT. It has served it duty on many different vehicles I have owned in the past. However, I ordered a new SGII for the FX$ EcoBoost. Wanted to make sure I had the most current version for reading the turbo. I did find a link to a YouTube posting of the SGII reading the turbo pressure, it is like most digital gauges in that the numbers do not display as fluid as a sweeping analog gauges does, but it is a nice simple plug and play setup. Plus the SGII offers so many gauges that can be programmed and monitored.

I was not thrilled with my Scan Gauge on my Taco. You might want to take a look at Ultra Gauge as it does the same think and is cheaper.

Well my newest and latest Scan Gauge came in the mail yesterday. I ended up paying $169 for it with the optional windshield Blend Mount. Now all I have to do is figure out how to program the Scan Gauge to read the turbo boost.
