      Thats wild. Im sure its relative to the signal you send it. If you use the proper sending unit you can get it to read whatever you want.

      It just reads boost off CAN. The sensor reports absolute pressure, not relative, so subtract 14.7 and you have actual boost

      I suspect you could put a clamping diode in place to make this read true boost

      2012 Turbo Beetle
      11-12-2012 10:14 AM #9
      Somebody in the Beetle forum tried to retrofit it into a Turbo Beetle (ie the car it was designed for), and gave up even with that. Some of the early Turbo Beetles didn't ship with the gauges (VW had some supply issues I guess), so somebody tried to get the parts and install it after the fact. I believe they found that they didn't have the correct wiring, and it was going to be a _lot_ of work to get it in. Suspect you're going to have a hard time cramming it into a golf R.
