Which gauges to use on supercharged 2011

The Procharger for my 2011 Mustang GT just showed up and in the instructions is recommends that you should have the following gauges available to properly check the finished installation and monitor your vehicle's performance (especially for testing):


Manifold Boost Pressure Gauge
Fuel Pressure Gauge
Wind Band Oxygen Sensor and Gauge.


How many of you installed the above listed gauges? Which ones, where did you get them, where did ya stick em', and how do you like them? I think I saw a pic of a boost gauge that was inserted into the left side vent. Looked good. Pic would be great.

Thanks,

Semper Fi

When I was running the blower on my GT, I had the Aeroforce setup. Boost is obvious. IAT2(post intercooler) is the other one I ran.

I run 2 aeroforce interceptor gauges. Have them installed in a SOS gauge pillar. The cool thing about these gauges is that each one can display 2 different things so really its like have 4 gauges. To read boost you need to get the boost sensor kit. Same thing for fuel pressure. I monitor A/f ratio bank 1 and 2, IAT's and boost. They are a little expensive but I think they are worth the money

I have the Aeroforce now with NO boost, but will be getting a Roush next year along with a MAP sensor to allow them to display boost. The AFR via wide band is great. You can also use one of the displays to switch between ECT and IAT ..lots of options

Thank you for all of your replys. Zilla8 that look really good. After 2-3 days of reading, reseaching etc. I found that the AeroForce gauges are incredible. All the features espcially when you purchase the dual interceptor Scan gauges. So that is what I did. It sounds so easy to install too. Plugs into the OB2 port and it boots up. I did get the Speed Of Sound dual gauge pillar pod along with all the sensor kits for Fuel/Oil and Boost/Vacuum.

Your right, not cheap but only two gauges to fiddle with sounds good to me. I really did like the looks of the Roush A/C pod kit but this will work just fine I think. Thanks for all of your help. I hope to start a build thread very soon. I have lots of parts to install so stay tuned.

One day when I supercharge, I plan on putting the Boss 3 guage pod on my dash with a Ford Racing vac/boost guage and two Aeroforce guages.
