    I don't really know, I never remember to look at the boost gauge! too much else going on when the hammer is down....

        An advantage to LSR - more time to look at the gages after you're done shifting (though I still sometimes for get to look). A camera mount pointed at the gages would be a good thing......

          I usually forget to turn on the camera...or it's too blurry to see anything useful.

            This sounds like a job for DAQ! Data Acquisitions System at your service... but then again that would clutter your engine bay with those pesky non-period correct sensors.

              This one relies on crappy 54 year old analog acquisition and logging. My brain.

                  If you are getting over 10 psi of boost, personally I would have head studs and MLS gaskets. Bolts will let the head lift off the deck under higher boost. I would not want to fire slot those aluminum heads from the gaskets fire ring failing between the cylinders.

                    It doesn't make that much boost. Probably more like 6

                      You could use a Super 8 home movie camera to record the gauges which would be period correct.

                        double 8 is what I used about 28 years ago. All our 1960s home movies are on 16mm.

                            I don't have any working movie cameras....although I think you can still get it developed. For a price.

                              True camera stores still develop actual film.
