LB7 Edge CTS 2 Higher boost sensor review?

Hey guys i have an LB7 and currently have the EDGE CTS 2 on it. I know the map sensor only reads to 24 psi. Im putting a Stealth 64 turbo on and i know it will hit more than 24 psi than what it will read on the monitor. I did some research and found that edge makes a pressure sensor that will plug into monitor and then you drill and tap the sensor into the intake and it will give you a higher boost reading, has anyone done this and if so what do you guys think? Is it worth it? Does it show higher boost? Thanks

I've not been able to bring myself to spend that kind of money on an 'add on' to the cts. You can add a good analog boost gauge on the top of the steering column for less than those two pieces you have listed there. Do you have the expandable kit already with an exhaust probe?

Through Autometer you can get a dual pillar with 35psi boost and 1600*egt gauges for 350 bucks if you don't have a speaker in the pillar.

I have the cts hooked to the egt probe, but also a 3 pillar gauge setup in my 02, but I monitor both sides for egts and lots of other things since I sled pull with mine.

Yeah exactly, its way too spendy and for $400 i could have 3 gauges that will read great, yes i have egt probe on it already, so all id really want to do is boost gauge since i already have egt and trans temp on the cts2. I may just do pillar gauges, just trying to save some money!
