P3 Boost Gauge

Been looking it up and it seems to be a very cool modification and an easy way to monitor things. However I am confused as to what via the obdII port the gauge is able to read, it mentioned the use of analog attachments but I assumed that the obdII port should offer all the info the gauge can show. Anyone have any experience or have this gauge installed.

OBDII can read all functions. Analog connectors are for those running tunes I believe. Boost tap is required for N54's, while N55's can read boost from either.

VERY cool gauge... I am pleased with mine.

So you have to run a hose and tap it using a t connection where the n55 reads boost via obd? You have any pictures of your install?

P3 has install video on their website. The boost line install is easier than the gauge actually.
