Does anyone think it is possible to change the amp/volt meter on the gauge cluster to be something else?

Like on my Porsche Cayenne Turbo I have a boost gauge built into the gauge cluster. I think it would be cool to have a boost meter there instead of a volt meter...

This was my plan take the internals of a basic boost gauge WITHOUT a vacuum side to it like this one...


Since the volt meter looks like this


You can scale it down to basically only use 0-15psi using the stock needle and you would need to custom make a boost faceplat that would fit over the volt meter faceplate with 0-15psi because that would be roughly 1/3 the circle...

granted that you would only be able to use 0-15 psi I think it would be cool to try this out.... any feedback would be appreciated!
hard part is trying to find a cheap gauge cluster to mess around with... :/


Well looking at the 2 pictures again it seems like you could use it all the way to 30 psi... you just need to custom make the faceplate to read up to 30psi... I just think this would be pimp!
