on my 99 i've never went over 19 psi. so the 30 psi would probably work great. Are there any price differences?

Get the 60, you may need it in the future and it isn't any harder to read. I had a 35 and swapped it for a 60, my stock injectors and turbo could have pegged a 30. I haven't needed the 60 yet but one of these days I think I might.:evil:

Intake, chip and injectors will peg a 30 PSI guage. No sense doing it twice, might as well get the 60 from the start.

60 PSI you loose all the fine reading... Your not going to get to 60 more then once without pulling the motor and installing studs... Stick with the 30... Boost gauges are cheap and you would rather have a gauge that matches your current mods.

any gage you put in should be able to read twice your normal operating range. so if you think you might be hitting 20psi then you should have a 40 psi gage.. they don't make that but they do make a 60.. go with the 60.
