Raxiom Vent Integrated Boost Gauge w/o Vent Housing (15-18 F-150)
What's going, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my detailed review and breakdown of the Raxiom Vent-Integrated Boost Gauge without Housing, fitting your 2015 through current F-150. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this might appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then we'll take a quick look at installation, where you're gonna be looking at an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour to get this onto your truck. So this kit that I have here in front of me today should definitely appeal to any EcoBoost owner or a blown Coyote F-150 owner that's not only looking to incorporate a very cool convenience into their cabin, but more importantly, to monitor your boost that your turbos are producing or turbo on the fly. So not only is this gonna be a very cool, modern convenience as well as getting away with a factory-style look for your F-150's cabin, but for an EcoBoost owner, like myself, or for any blown Coyote truck owners out there, you're gonna have the ability to see what kind of boost you're producing on the fly. Now, for an EcoBoost owner, like myself, again, I do have a tendency to add performance parts onto my truck, even though it's not a Mustang. But I actually wanna see what kind of numbers I'm making right then and there, as if I'm gonna installing a cold air intake, and then a throttle body, and then a handheld tuner, and then maybe getting into some downpipes, I actually wanna see just how much boost both of my turbos are producing. Now, another cool feature about this gauge is that you're actually gonna have the ability to measure your battery voltage. So if your truck is something where it doesn't get driven daily, you're gonna have the ability to see just how well it's performing and keep everything in check. Now, I do wanna mention, if you're gonna be looking for a little bit more functionality, like having the ability to measure, say, air intake temperatures or measure 0 to 60 times, I would definitely suggest checking out the multi-function gauge, which we do have on site separately. So in terms of the construction of this kit, everything that I have here on the table in front of you today is gonna be what you're gonna receive in the box. Now, that's gonna be from your module, your vacuum tap, the face plate itself, some quick-splice connectors, as well as a couple of zip ties. There's really nothing more that you're gonna need to get this onto your truck, but I do wanna add that, if you're gonna need to stretch that hose, we do have a separate one on site, which is a little bit longer. So in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending around 230 bucks for this kit, which, in my opinion, is pretty affordable, considering some of the other options out there may make you pick the gauge itself as well as picking up the housing after the fact. Again, for the money here, I think you're gonna be getting away with a ton of functionality. But not only that, you're gonna be getting away with some great OE-style looks, which is definitely a conversation piece inside of your F-150, as this is gonna sit very flush as well as not have some bright and kinda ugly colors, which I don't think would mesh too well with the interior of your F-150. So switching gears and looking at the installation here, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're gonna be looking at a very simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour to get this onto your truck. So let's take a closer look at what's gonna be entailed. You're gonna have to start by pulling your driver's side vent housing, which you essentially need to be pulling out and then up to remove that. So after this, essentially disconnect the line of the bottom of the vent housing and pull the fascia trim by releasing the clips on the sides. After that, you're gonna need to pull the slot assembly, and you're damn near done. So once that's done, you're g

I have a 2018 2.7 f-150 SXT Eco Boost Do I have to purchase something else? Or it’s a complete kit?
The Raxiom Vent Integrated Boost Gauge without Housing is perfect for any supercharged or turbocharged 2015 to 2018 F-150's. If you find that the supplied vacuum line included with this Boost Gauge is too short for your needs, you will be glad to hear that Raxiom offers a 60" (5ft) ( https://www.americantrucks.com/raxiom-5ft-tubing-extention-1516-f150.html ). AmericanTrucks recommends purchasing the Extension Kit at the same time to avoid any installation headaches. This is a complete kit.
So after reading reviews does this vent boost gauge cut off when truck is off or not? I am trying to get it because I have the Roush Nightmare F150 it’s supercharged not turbocharged would this gauge benefit my truck? Thx in advance
The Raxiom Vent Integrated Boost Gauge will turn on/off with the ignition key. This will read boost on both supercharged and turbocharged vehicles.
how is this different than OBD2 model?
The Raxiom Vent Integrated Boost Gauge will use an aftermarket high accuracy boost sensor, to allow for a more accurate boost reading than the stock boost PID sourced from the OBD II Port. Additionally since this does not tie into the OBD II Port, this will be unable to read anything other than boost and battery voltage.
When the vehicle is off, does the gauge turn off also, or stay powered up?
The Raxiom Vent Integrated Boost Gauge w/o Vent Housing will turn off when the truck is off yes.
Does this gauge also display vacuum, or does it solely display boost?
The Raxiom Vent Integrated Boost Gauge will be able to display both boost and vacuum.

Cool boost gauge.
Looks nice, very unobtrusive way to mount a boost gauge. Relatively easy install, but arrived with absolutely no instructions. And the videos posted by AM are of little help. Detailed instructions or more detailed videos would be nice, including applications on both eccoboost motors.

Just as promised
I have been on your website for at least a month looking at your inventory, it’s very impressive and decided to try an order as a trial. I ordered a Raxiom vent integrated boost gauge for my charged 2016 f150. The process of ordering was painless and part arrived on time as promised. I’m positive there will be many more in the future because if you don’t have it I probably don’t need it.

Looks great and works good. Seems to be good quality. Only thing is I think they need to be a little more detailed in the instructions on the wiring. The picture of the wiring in instructions looks nothing like the wiring I had on my 2017 f150. Overall I'm very happy

Nice Looking Boost Gauge
Instructions were easy until you got to hooking the power and ground up to vehicles OBD port. They leave you hanging as to which wire you must use and you must research info online elsewhere. I ordered the extra hose kit but ended up not needing it. You have plenty of hose if you tap into the brake booster vacuum line before the one-way valve. Most time consuming part for me was threading the hose from engine bay to cockpit through the firewall. Everything works and looks great. The only drawback is there is no auto power off function. LEDs are on constantly and I'm afraid to let truck sit for long periods of time without disconnecting the power wire.
