Are there any boost gauges on the market for our cars? Preferably one that doesn't use gauge pods? Something like this would be ideal. Crazy this car doesn't come with one, especially since we have a different gauge cluster to begin with...

Boost gauges are universal. Any brand would work.

This is mine. Took the picture before I secured the Gauge it's not crooked. Prosport evo boost gauge

find one


but seriously, Petraman' i like the idea of a gauge integrate to the car design and not just drop somewhere...(only exception is the Greddy Sirius Vision series but I'm way to cheap for that)

actually I have the Torque app with the OBDII dongle, but can't find a way to show it on the Android auto screen

Each app on Android has to specifically get their app cleared for Android Auto in order for it to show up, and that's no easy task. I wouldn't expect it to show on android auto anytime soon.

I'll second the OBDLink LX. It's a great bluetooth dongle. I've gone through 4 (always seeking the best bang for my buck!) and this one is, without question, the best of the lot.

Here's another thing to consider:

Torque Pro doesn't actually have a profile for our car and they've stopped development as near as I can tell. You'll have to select one of the other 1.6l turbos from the list of vehicles, most likely the VT. Because of this you can only read common sensors, not anything Hyundai specific. There is a Hyundai Advanced EX plugin that should allow you to read more Hyundai specific PIDs, but they have definitely stopped development for that and our car is not in the list. However... what I'm monitoring right now is this: Boost pressure, AFR both commanded and actual, ambient and intake temps, cat temp, and coolant temp. So, there's still plenty of use to get out of it, it's just not as awesome as it could be (it's super, super frickin' awesome with the VT).

So, has anyone actually installed a physical boost gauge yet? I'm asking because Torque was giving me some weird boost readings yesterday. I'm assuming the application is wrong due to having to fudge the vehicle profile. Tork has told us that this car runs at 12 psi, and I have no reason to disbelieve them - they're experts at what they do and I'm reasonably certain that they wouldn't mess up something so simple - I trust them.

Now, what am I on about? Torque Pro was showing me readings way over 12psi. Like I was regularly hitting 15.5 under WOT and once hit 17.5. I just don't think that this is right and I'd like to hear from someone running a physical gauge and compare notes.

I have the torque app and a boost gauge...

Before I installed the tork intake and tork pipe, both physical gauge and torque app where reading 12psi at WOT and held steady...

After installing the intake and tork pipe my readings jumped to 18psi steady at WOT... No spiking with a little taper to 17 at redline.

After about 300 miles, the car has dialed the boost down to 16psi and it holds steady on the gauge until redline. with the torque app, in some of my logs it seems to be anywhere between 15.5 and 16.5 (I have had a few spikes up to 17ish) with WOT pulls in 2nd 3rd and 4th gears...

Interesting. I haven't done a darned thing to my car aside from some aesthetic mods and I'm hitting 17.5 every now and again.

Which vehicle model did you choose for your car profile in Torque?

When I created a profile, it did not give me the option to chose a pre-made profile. So I input the information myself... I do have the paid version, not sure if that makes a difference of not.

Ah, yeah, sorry... I was thinking for the setting for Advanced Hyundai EX, which is a plugin for Torque. With that in mind though and as I'm using a PID that isn't Hyundai specific, it seems like it has to be right.

Thanks for helping me walk through that in my head. :)

What wires did you tap into to power your gauge?

I have been wanting a workable boost gauge since day 1, and this is the best solution I have found so far without adding a physical gauge.

OBDLink LX + OBD2AA (need XDA Labs app) + Android phone + open up developer settings in AA. Basically have a read here. https://forum.xda-developers.com/general/paid-software/app-obd2-plugin-android-auto-torque-t3657805

I'm still playing around with it and see what gauges I actually want (in addition to boost), playing with the looks and also the app just gets updated so often I'm playing with it a lot.

This is what it looks like on android auto when it's running, obviously the values are wrong becuase I've just used 'preview' mode on the phone while it's disconnected.

It's quite responsive and mostly looks like it's meant to be there, perfect solution to needing a boost gauge IMO! definitely the cheapest at $2 USD for OBD2AA

The gauges show up on the infotainment display?
