How easy are boost gauges to fit?
I think my turbo is not boosting right after chipping it so figured the gauge would help me find the problem (and they look cool)
Which boost gauge should I go for?

First, the fit depends on where you're planning to put them. Most install on their a-pillar in a single pod. And about which to get, I like autometer (autometer.com) personally. They have this nice carbon fiber faced boost gauge that's absolutely sweet. Good luck. Some other's are blitz, vdo...
Do a search you'll find your answer to this in no time.

What kind of chip and have you replaced the diverter valve yet?

There are a few "how to" pages out there on this. I used one to install my VDO guage on an A-Pillar pod, and it went pretty well. Took me a couple hours because I took my time.

I've got an autometer...took me a good hour to install (taking time though
Make sure you get a guage with 30inHg vacuum readings as well! Probably want up to at least 25 or 30psi too. (probably only need 25)
