Boost controllers..

I know there aren't a whole lot of turbo V6s, but I was curious what boost controllers you guys are running. From my searching it seems most like the AEM true boost. It seems like a good product and has a good price, I'm just not a huge fan of the way it looks.

I really like the way the GReddy PRofec looks and it seems to match the dash colors and heads up display perfectly. Are there any negatives to the GReddy besides it not being a gauge style that fits in a pillar?

Can't really decide which way I want to go, as I'll probably be needing an A/F gauge too.

That Greddy one looks nice! I have the AEM Tru Boost with matching AFR gauge. I like uniformity and function so I went with what I have.

Both those setups look good. One thing I worry about with the aem gauges is the flashing lights that sweep back and forth. The YouTube videos I've seen show them kind of dancing around while cruising. Worried that they will bother me at night. I'd really like to keep from putting gauges on the pillar if I can.

I think the AFR gauge bothers me more than the boost gauge. There has only been one time that the gauges actually bothered me and i blocked them with my hand. I was about 5 hours into I drive and it was 3 in the morning. I was pretty tired

Not bad, I like how small it is.

What are you running for an air/fuel gauge? Im looking for something that doesn't have to go on the pillar. I guess I could get the pod for the top of the steering column just not a big fan of those aftermarket plastic pods.

Using glowshift wideband and boost gauge on a pillar mount. Will take a pic of setup and post it for you when I get off. The boost controller was add later and i didn't want to mess with my pillar setup. I have place it every where center of dash on top of steer column. It thats small.

Yeah I'd love to see your setup. I'm kinda just leaning more towards the pillar pod. I don't like the way the plastic looks so I might try flocking it like the guy that made this thread. It will match my ZL1 suede steering wheel I have and the ZL1 dash inserts I'm going to get.

Looks good. I think I'm just going to go ahead and order the autometer double pillar gauge pod. I like the look with this flocking stuff on it. Might do the passenger side too so they will match.
