I really like the fact you can dim them or even make them seem like its off... cant wait.. but of course I need a new tune first...

Of course! It switched to "dimmed" mode automatically along with the rest of dash displays.

you can also independently adjust the brightness of the gauge, incase you want it brighter or dimmer than the rest of the dash. There is 9 levels for daytime, and 9 levels for nighttime programmable from the gauge.

Is it possible to have an on/off switch somewhere stealth for when rolled into a dealer? Saving the need to pull it out whenever you drop in?

Yep, you could put a switch tucked under the center console, or even in the ashtray.

Actual boost pressure (in PSI) that the engine is seeing in the intake manifold after the throttle body (the correct place to measure boost). It also shows vacuum when you are not in boost.

Any idea if this would work in a 123d? We're twin turbo as well. Although sequential turbos, not parallel. I'd be interested to know how much boost my car is running.

I'm thinking this would be a pretty good way to work on your gas milege too. If you try and keep the car under boost, at the vacuum levels, your using the turbos to recycle the exhaust and just making your mpg better. Is that right? Correct me if i'm wrong..

It actually works pretty good as a "save fuel" meter too... keep it out of boost for a whole tank, and you will see that you can save quite a bit... I actually have a customer that said he uses it for that purpose a lot.
