I've already ordered a CAI which is apparently on backorder.

I want to order a boost gauge tommorrow, probably a DEFI.

Still need to figure out which EBC i want. The ProFec E-01 I like and I'm thinking about, but seems a bit cumbersome.

But how nice are those SBC controllers? Particularly the i-color. The one I like would eliminate the need for a boost gauge actually. A bit more costly. But I think it might be one of those 'fuzzy logic' controllers, and I don't want one of those.

And I want some wheels

be weary of Ebay for wheels...I'd recomend tirerack.com or some of the other big name online wheel stores

I got my DeFi Boost from www.EdoPerformance.com, no problems arriving although I haven't installed it yet, hehe.

I had to reorder my CAI as the group buy was backordered and might be quite a while before they can mail it to me.

I'm still looking for my boost gauge and my boost controller, I can't make up my mind. :swearin:

The Control Unit II came with a wire for power, a wire to connect the unit up to a gauge, double sided tape, and some wire splicers thingies.

The Boost Gauge comes with the a simple gauge mount, a "daisy-chain" wire, a sensor, a rubber tube for the sensor (roughly 12"), a T-connector, and the wire to run from the sensor to the control unit.

I haven't hooked mine up yet because I need buy a small screw / bolt for mounting the sensor and I have no clue where I want to put the gauge yet. Overall though the kit looks nice and should hopefully be a straightforward install.

Did you go for the Defi BF imperial or one of the other models?

Yep, it's the DeFi BF Imperial (Amber). All the pics seems to show it as a perfect match. Now if only I could find a good 60mm mount solution...

I'm still looking for a place to buy both the boost controller and the gauge. I probably want the DEFI, but I really want one of the mechanical ones.

They are coming out with a new line of gauges which won't need the control unit (although I believe they are still electrical) in September. The "Blue Racer" series. I think the name would have described it a little better if it was called the "Blue Ricer", but that's just my opinion. You can pre-order at EDO.
