Boost is more or less based on throttle position. You can feather the throttle and never go into boost on an entire drive, but when you start to get on the throttle more you will feel the car pick up and start hauling ass, and maybe hear the turbo/bpv (kinda like a blow off- depending on the intake and inlet you are running, upgraded will give you a better whoosh sound, especially metal ones) while rowing through the gears.Thanks all. What is still relatively new to me is turbo. Now, I know boost comes on demand, but how do you keep out of boost under 3000K? Like, it wouldn't be in boost unless you're hammering it. Right? (Sorry for the lack of knowledge. I've driven N/A's all my life. lol)
But yeah, a boost gauge is a must have, my favorite is the prosport Evo series, costs less than $100 shipped and matches the sexy red interior perfectly. The guy above (Block8Head) sells these neat gauge pods for our car, great quality. Or you can put it in one of the heat/AC vents in the center dash..or grab a cheap gauge pod from eBay for $40 bucks.
