1 kgf/cm2 = 14.22psi
So when your greddy gauge says 1.2 kgf/cm2, that' exactly 17psi.. and 2.0 kgf/cm2 = 28.4psi
That's the first I've heard of that. I stand corrected.Josh S said:
My Apexi EL Electronic gauge units are "Reading x100kPa" so a reading of 1.0 on the gauge does in fact equal 1.0bar. I know a lot of people are running the Apexi gauges which read in Bar, while the Greddy gauges read in kgf/cm2.
Strange, maybe I have a freak gauge. Anyway I'm attaching a scan of the box that shows kPa. Wonder if mine is an old model, or a newer one? Anyone else have one like mine?Andi said:

I do have a question.... are there different Apexi boost gauges that read in different scales?
You could get an Autometer gauge, but a lot of guys on here will trash it because it isn't Japanese. Mine works fine. The only thing I wish I had was peak hold. But in 52mm (2 1/16") there isn't a peak hold. At least I don't think there is.dtalbert said:Thanks to all who responded. All the info is very helpful.
I have a follow-up question. I am in the process of going BPU and was trying to make a decision on which boost gauge to buy for the clock location. I want it to match the stock instruments (Black face / green backlight). Mohd tells me the only 52 mm eletronic gauge is the Greedy which reads in kg/cm2. Although I guess I can get used to the "bar" measurement, I really was looking for a 52 mm electronic gauge with the more simple (for me) to read p.s.i. Anybody know of another gauge which fits these requirements i.e. 52mm, electronic, black face, green backlight, p.s.i.?
