Default Greddy boost gauge???

I was recommended by some friends to get a greddy or apexi boost gauge instead of autometer if I wasn't pinching pennies, so I went ahead and ordered the greddy boost gauge... on the website it's really hard to get a close look at the boost gauge... is my gauge the one everyone receives?... the gauge only goes up to 2.0 and is in kg/cm2 (squared) units... I was expecting lbs/in2. Are all greddy gauges like this??? do any of the greddy boost gauges come in psi units? Also, what is the conversion. how many psi of boost is 0.5 kg/cm2.... 1.0 kg/cm2.... 1.5 or 2.0 kg/cm2? Should I keep this gauge, or send it back? I guess this is probably a newbee question, but I would appreciate any help you guys can give me...

Thanks in Advance,
Zack

Yes. I believe none of them are in psi. It's cool you know, but when it comes to tuning and looking for advice, it just takes another step to convert it.

I have the AutoMeter Boost gauge and it works really well, showing up to 20 psi of boost and 30 thingies of vaccum.

Thanks a lot guys... I just looked on Apexi's website and it says you can get their Mechanical boost meters are available in PSI and KPA... which are better, mechanical or electronic? Also, does Greddy also offer in PSI and KPA for mechanical? what is your guys opinion on this?

i use a mechanical, because i heard it was easier to install, but i don't know anything about the electrical, so i guess im lost there.

.1bar = 1.422334331psi

its not that bad once you use it.. pressure won't jump all over the place.. readings in bar matches standart wasteage spring setting anyway..
