I stumbled across some cheap Boost, Water Temp and Tachometer gauges on Amazon recently, so I thought what the heck, and decided to try and integrate them into my sim rig.

As is usually the case with most sim-related projects, I’m not the first person to think of this, so I used a few of the guides from AMSTUDIO as a reference and then adapted them to suit my particular integration.

This video shows how I wired everything up as well as how to configure SimHub to get it all working, as well as the end result.
