    Ah, OK so this is a normal, fitted from factory type gauge then?

    Yes, not sure if they were even an option on the Roadster as I've never seen one without the gauges fitted:

    Not sure what boost gauges other people are running, mine is pretty simple and yes - someone just beat me to posting a picture - yes that's exactly what mine looks like and by the sounds of it all is normal. For now...must stop watching the boost gauge and keep eyes on road in future!

    Thanks all

    Is it vacuum operated or bus driven from the ECU?

    As I stated above... hardly anyone here has or really understands Roadsters.
    WWW.THEROADSTER.NET is the place to be for these questions.

    Question was correctly answered here in the seventh post.

    Begs the question why no one with Roadster experience and a member of TRN didn't answer it here. Only here to poach? Try helping.
