    A JDM fanboi wet dream right there.. In my friends 600+hp FRS he is running boost, oil temp and pressure from defi. For the CLA I'd probably only do boost myself.. For my boosted car I ran a AEM Failsafe gauge that showed pressure and wideband.. But I myself wouldn't worry about AFR unless you are doing mods and ECU/Tuning work.

    Well by far the three most useful gauges to have in a high strung turbocharged car are Boost, Air/Fuel Ratio, and Oil Pressure.

    Useful if you're modding the car a lot, not so much so if you're leaving it stock.

    You are idling and it looks like the charging system is "maintaining" the battery at float level (13.4~13.6).
    Though when you drive and there are loads it should drop back to static around 12.8.
    I am presuming your V tap is at the battery and not inside an e-box in the cabin?
    And ... you didnt drill into the dash to mount the gauges did you?? 😁😁

    We created a simple easy way to get a boost/vacuum signal from the CLA as well as extra ports for water meth/NOS if you plan. We call it our power plate: https://www.turbokits.com/Mercedes-B...er_Plate/2226/ - In Stock.
