-12 in hg converts to -40 kPa which is definitely not correct. You're probably right, it's probably there for another model. Perhaps the rumored twin turbo big brother motor for the top of the line C7?

OK, what do I need to do to have GM give me a prototype to test and drive??? Talk about hitting the lotto. I can test a car year round without any hint of snow or ice. Good pictures even if they are taken with a cell phone.

LMAO - I'll sacrifice myself and do some altitude testing as well if they need it. Maryland International Raceway (such a grand name for a dragstrip) has an elevation of a whopping 80' ASL It's only 80 miles from my front door and then I have Capitol Raceway outside the Beltway for verification I will need to make multiple passes naturally, to validate the results....

It's a vacume gauge also. So it has a use on non boosted engines as well.

The passenger grab handle on the center console looks ridiculously chunky.

I don't think anyone's really meant to hold on using that thing.

I will have to see if Social Security will give me an increase each month so I can go back to school.

We know that it can read vacuum. Why doesnt it read vacuum(inHg) instead of PSI is the question. The gauge itself reads 12PSI max, down to 0, then -12. -12PSI doesnt make any sense and neither does 12inHg(Not enough) if thats what they were implying. Pretty sure its just there for testing at this point.

That is one outstanding looking car !

That is exactly what I would buy....*maybe I'd get the chrome wheels instead of silver*...but other than that....that's perfect !

Love it !

GM said they used one software build for the gauge cluster for all preproduction cars. Some features will get taken out once saleable cars are built.

All this means is some form of forced induction will be making its way into a Corvette soon.

6.5inHG sounds awfully low. Even with not running things off of vacuum a healthy motor still creates it with the throttle closed. I think the numbers are just a placeholder for things to come.
Had this in my heavily modded S60R back in the day.



"Product Description
IPD's illuminated 52mm vacuum boost gauge functions well within the operating range of these models. Gauge reads from 30 inches of vacuum to 30PSI of boost. A great match to the factory R models produced from 2004-2007.

This is the gauge only for those that want to custom mount their gauge. This kit includes boost tubing and connectors along with gauge harness pigtail for electrical hookup of gauge illumination."

I never saw more than about 15 in vacuum though. This is a Turbo application.
