I have fitted a boost gauge and mounted it in the centre console area. I knew it would be difficult to see in this area without taking your eyes off the road but I did not want to drill holes and stick things to the A pillar. After using it for awhile in this position it has proved a pain in the butt to monitor boost pressure, so I will probably remount it somewhere in the A Pillar area.

Was gonna say just use an AP! How you like the tune on the AP? Wake it up decent?

The Cobb Accessport is probably the best aftermarket money I've ever spent. I'm keeping this car mildly modded, it's my daily commuter car. I flashed it back to stock for less than a day, probably never again. Our little engine is just angrier with the tune and I'm only using 91.

Sekred is your ST stock, if so what is it boosting?

I agree that down there it's a bit awkward to look at the boost guage. If I'm feeling particularly adventurous one day I may look at mounting one in the circular air vent by the steering wheel to make it nice and neat. On the plus side - will never need to worry about the guage getting hot because the back of it will always be icy cold! :p

Moved it onto the door panel. Easier to see now. Pain in the butt to mount it where I did though.

did you try a mounting cup on the tiny window to the right of your dash?

That does look better Sekred - it's good seeing the guage size beside the air vent because it looks like it'll almost be a perfect fit. I'll likely definitely be getting the boost guage and that's where mine is going to go.

The 2014 fiesta st's turbo boosts up to 21psi for up to 20 seconds at a time and then cuts it back to 12psi due to a electronic boost control
