: Boost Gauge - Katie?

It would be very nice if we could add a Boost gauge via a CUE update as an option for the instrument panel display. This should not be hard to do as I'm certain the system already talks to the ECU for MPG and such and it would only need to call another PID. Do you think you can make this suggestion? As tuning progresses it would be nice to have a Boost Gauge option as I simply can't see messing up the fine looks of my car by adding a gauge myself.

Great suggestions and I also made the same request into Katie. I was really surprised there was no boost gauge. There must of been a good reason why they did not include one.

I remember awhile back watching MotorWeek (I think) and they had a segment on the ATS. When the showed the DIC, they flipped through several menus. One was titled "Boost." After seeing this I scoured the internet, the owner's manual etc. and found nothing. My guess is that it was a pre-production car and the "Boost" DIC menu was removed for production. No idea as to why. I agree it would be a much-appreciated feature.
