Boost gauge? Interceptor or through an aftermarket stereo???

I have an edelbrock supercharger installed and soon I'll have long tube headers with catted X-pipe, then after that smaller pulley, CAI and 60lb injecters. I've read that long tube headers can change the a/f ratio and boost psi. After the smaller pulley upgrade I'd like to be able to monitor boost, a/f, fuel pressure.

I really like the aeroforce interceptor gauge but I'd also like to keep my car stock (sleeper) looking. I was thinking of the vent pod with the aeroforce or get an pioneer avic (if it can display such things like boost and air fuel ratio. If someone could tell me which pioneer head unit will display these things. Or if any of you have had an aeroforce gauge, if you could tell me how well it works for you.

Thanks, it looks good but that's not what I'm looking for. Plus $1000 sounds too steep for the data acquisition I'm looking for.

Anybody have any other ideas for data acquisition? So far the aeroforce seems best performance per dollar.

A single Aeroforce with the wideband kit works great for me. It has two analog inputs. I use one for the wideband and the other for boost. The E Force comes with a TMAP sensor in the plenum. (sensor that reads manifold pressure and intake air temperature) You simply get a 5V "source" to that sensor and it sends out a signal for boost that the Aeroforce reads. It works really well once you get it setup. I have my Aeroforce in a vent pod and it's pretty stealth.

Thanks KDT. Looks like I'll probably end up with alot of the same parts as you. Although I was leaning towards 3.90 gears instead of 3.73s. And my drag radials are M/T's et street radials. I haven't decided on LCA's or fuel system. And I'll get to the stage 1 soon enough.
