AeroForce Interceptor gauge question??

Does anyone have one of these gauges, and can you tell me if you can monitor manifold pressure(boost) with out having to buy the boost sensor kit? According to the parameter list on their website it looks like it should but I would like to know for sure, I have already ordered the gauge and wideband sensor kit.

It will read the fuel rail pressure PID.

It can measure manifold absolute pressure, not boost.

Here's a better explanation.

Absolute Pressure = Gauge Pressure + Ambient Pressure
So what do these mean in the automotive world? Turbocharged cars usually have boost gauges, which are used to measure the pressure that the turbocharger is generating when compressing the intake charge (air). These gauges read gauge pressure. Therefore, if a boost gauge reads 20psig (’g’ stands for gauge pressure) at the intake manifold then the absolute pressure at the manifold is actually 20psig + 14.7psi = 34.7psi ( ‘a’ for absolute pressure). Naturally aspirated cars have a manifold pressure equal to the ambient pressure, so a MAP sensor in an N/A car would ideally read 14.7psi at sea level.
