    I’ve got a 09 GT with Edelbrock supercharger and Detroit rocker cams and need to pick up an boost and afr combo gauge. Any suggestions? Lots of different brands with mixed online reviews.

    I also make a recommendation for Autometer gauges.

    I have glow shift gauges and they work just fine.

    I like my Autometer Sport-Comp AFR and boost gauges.

    I like AEM 30-4900 wideband failsafe gauge. Both boost and afr with the ability to adjust what and how it displays.

    I like the Innovate stuff, we use a lot of their gauges at my shop.

    Cool, I ended up ordering Innovate PSB-1 PowerSafe Boost and Air / Fuel Gauge Kit. Any advice installing on a s197. Guessing, vacuum hose and the other by replacing one of the o2’s
    and plug it in. Will I need any adaptors or anything? Last car I installed gauges on was my 66 GT and it’s been awhile

    I would not suggest replacing any of your factory O2's. The front 2 are needed for tuning, and the rear 2, if messed with, will throw a check engine light (unless disabled in the tune). Even if they were disabled, I wouldn't put my wideband O2 that far back in the exhaust. Best practice is to weld in a new threaded bung for the new O2. Any exhaust shop should be able to do this if you can't do it yourself.

    Your intake manifold should have a place to run a boost gauge off of. The wiring for the wideband should be pretty well described in the instructions for the gauge you purchased. For +12v, I tapped into the cigarette lighter on my car I believe. The one above the radio.

    I went off the driver side rear o2, but I have them turned off.

    Thanks for the advice. I was totally guessing on replacing one the the rear o2’s, glad I asked now. What you said totally makes sense. I’m installing to finish up a tune. Gives something to think about while I wait for the gauge to arrive. Thanks again guys
