This is the gauge you will want to connect via can to your ecu;

I believe I already emailed you back about your base map.

As far as boost gauges go I have always had good success with analog autometer gauges in my 944 turbo. I also ran a Turbosmart electronic boost controller, which was a really nice EBC for the money

I can second the autometer gauges, I don’t run a boost gauge from them but their coolant temp, oil temp, and oil pressure gauges have done me well.

Take it to IPR and have them go over the whole car. Since it's new to you, you don't know what you are dealing with and they should be able to assess what you've got

Or you could start troubleshooting the various multiple unknowns on your own

Just a suggestion

^ Agree. 1950rpm is pretty high, you should have IRP at least go over the basic to make sure everything is in good shape.
