The only issue I found with mine is that the Scangauge measures boost pressure as an absolute value via the Map sensor so was registering normal air pressure of 14.7 ish then adding the boost pressure on top of that figure. I did find a pdf file however that found a way around it and it now measures boost pressure starting from 0.
It's not as accurate as a dedicated boost gauge but it serves my purpose.
Regards Andrew.

The pdf fix to change from absolute boost pressure is here: http://www.scangauge.com.au/support/pdfs/Ample Outdoors - X-Gauge - Turbo Boost.pdf

Not sure... Having worked in aviation for a time I run mine as MAP as I haven't bothered with the X Gauge Boost thing so one of the others will help you there hopefully...

No Oil Pressure on the Scangauge and I don't think the CRD reports Oil Pressure to the ECU as a value. If that is the case then you can't program up an X gauge parameter to read it either...
