    11 years ago we uploaded a video called 'How To Install a Boost Gauge DIY'. MCM was brand new and had only been on YouTube for 8 weeks! Technology sure has changed a lot so now 11 years later, we're doing it again and showing you how it's done with OBD2. This week there will be 2 episodes showing you two different options for gauges. We also have MCM T-shirts back in stock (link in description) if you'd like to support the show. Enjoy! And you can check out the original 2008 episode here:

      @Chris chrisI got imported from the US a wired touchscreen gauge that is a popular brand with diesel 4x4 trucks. I like it because I have an older ecu and it has the added feature of I can add extra sensors for it to read, do diagnostics/maintence, control LED bars from the touchscreen, it can even do ecu tunes. It cost about AUD$1000 with a competition sensor kit and a LED lighting control kit.
      Generally speaking the updated gauge apps and dongles are fast enough these days, however if you have an aftermarket stereo head unit you can also try something like an idatalink maestro module. They are not too well known in Australia but apparently quite popular in America.

      @Chris chris I have to agree I think Torque Pro on the Android Head Unit (e.g. like this cat here ) looks so much cleaner, you can display more than one gauge at the same time, completely customisable themes, plus it's way cheaper. Sorry Moog!

          $500 for a gauge that will probably melt if you turn your heat on high. WTF.

            After hearing it several times, got to thinkin'... Do Aussies normally pronounce the letter 'L' in "soldering iron," or is it just Moog being deliberate?

                    Moog is a control freak. Loses Rock Paper Scissors and says he’s going first anyways. I’ve seen him on other videos basically throw a hissy fit when things don’t go his way. Marty is always just chill, let’s Moog get his way so he’d just shut up and we can all move on

                          U can also get a piggy back ecu for around 500$'s kinda like a chipped ecu but the hardware is better then factory and it replaces your factory ecu with a tuneable ecu mine is Bluetooth capiable ;)

                                  $500 is steep as fuck for HW and SW that's cheap as chips (<$100 to end customer) and on the market 20+ years ago and they had to do 0 R&D to get. That fitment is pretty slick, though. Not sure if I'd be able to justify that if I owned an R, but if you could find a used one for significantly less, good part for sure.

                                            The module I prefer only needs to be connected to the CAN gateway module of the car. No more messing around. It shows many more ECU parameters on the cluster display. You can see 4 (or less) different parameters on the same screen, and you can set 10 (or more, I'm not sure) screens, if you want. Check out this: . I'm just a pleased customer.

                                                      Are you guys aware that you were sent the P3 gauge for a gti and not a golf r? The gauge that is for the golf r should have not have any red, only blue to match the golf r gauges. Also a boost tap is necessary to read correct boost, the ecu will only communicate up to 22 psi. Just a head up!

                                                                                            My entire media setup in my Seat cost about 400 and with the OBD2 port connector (via bluetooth) I can basically run the same checks via a software program on the media screen, play audio/movies/etc/etc.

                                                                                            It looks nice though, but 500 dollars nice? no.
