Stopped at PepBoys this afternoon to see what they have. Plenty of vac/boost gauges but I want a 270* sweep vac so that subtle changes are easier to see. Asked the counter guy who was super nice and looked up that they can get. He found a Sunpro gauge for $24.99 but when he rang me up it only cost $19.99 because that is what Advance Auto sells it for . So $20 and I'll have a vac gauge on Monday, I'm happy. Here's hoping it helps my driving technique...
So it's been 3 years. Are you happy with your vacuum gauge? Do you wish you had a different faceplate? Or, if the needle swept differently?
