NOTE: The original 30-4350 Tru Boost Controller Gauge is discontinued and has been replaced with the X-Series Tru-BoostX Controller Gauge.

The Tru-BoostX Boost Controller Gauge delivers all of the features you loved about the original only now with AEMnet for data logging and a big, fat internal MAP sensor that can handle boost pressures up to 80 PSI of boost.

The Tru-BoostX Boost Controller gauge delivers digital accuracy but with the simplicity of a manual boost controller. All programming is done using the faceplate buttons and no laptop is required. AEM's specially designed Boost Control Solenoid and all necessary hardware is included.

Program Two Boost Levels + Scramble Boost Setting - Program two boost modes for different levels of performance (up to 80PSIg internal MAP sensor), and program a time-based scramble boost setting that is controlled using a switched input. You can also turn off the controller and use the gauge as a display.

Change Wastegate Open Pressure - Ideal for reducing boost spikes and improving spool up.

Display Boost Levels in PSIg (PSI), BAR or kPa (PAS) -See your boost in the units you prefer, and scale the 24 outer LEDs to match your peak boost levels for the perfect sweeping motion.

Set Alarms and Display Peak Boost - Set the 24 green outer LEDs to flash based on boost pressure so you are alerted to an overboost condition. A ground output is included for triggering an optional LED warning light.

Overboost Protection Built In - Protects your engine from an overboost condition by shutting the boost control solenoid off until it is reactivated by you through the buttons on the faceplate.

Integrated Error Protection - Alerts you to a fault if the boost control solenoid is shorted or disconnected so you are never left guessing whether the Tru-BoostX is operational.

Datalog using AEMnet CAN bus - Outputting channels over AEMnet provides so much more than just boost pressure! Send 13 channels of data over a 2-wire connection, including boost pressure, peak boost, boost target, boost scramble duty, overboost status, wastegate crack pressure, boost control solenoid status and more.

Please note: this gauge comes with a black bezel and black face. AEM sells a Tru Boost X accessory pack that includes a silver bezel and face, which you can mix and match to your desire. You can have a black bezel and black face combo, black bezel and silver face combo, silver bezel and black face combo.

    Will this boost controller fit into my 3 gauge pillar?

      The industry standard gauge size in the USA is 2 1/16. Thats what size this gauge is, and so you should be fine, but if you want to make sure, check with your gauge pod manufacturer, or measure your pod hole.

    Will this mount cleanly in place of the factory boost guage on the Neon SRT4 or will it stick out to far?

      Yes, the AEM Tru Boost gauge boost controller will fit into the factory boost gauge pod of the Neon SRT-4 without sticking out. We had an employee install one into his NSRT4.

      AEM states it can handle up to 80 psi, but we cant recommend it for any higher than probably 35-40 psi.
