I just got egt and boost gauges and want to install this weekend. I couldn't find anything via search so I'm looking for a bit of info on how/where to tap into for the boost line. The sensor came with a 1/8" hose port that I suspect needs to be t'd in somewhere, my question is where is the best place?


I'll mount the sensor under the dash per the instructions but need to run the 1/8" line in from where?


Thanks!

PS I can't wait to get these hooked up so I can test out the higher tunes!!Edited by: DMAX2DAMAX

I have autometer gauges I just installed recently and autometer didn't even include a T fitting. I went to ACE and fab'd up a nice Brass T Fitting that makes everything fit sweet and solid.


I just T'd into the line running to the Wastegate. Seems to work beautifully.

Ok, I'm a diesel newby, but I've used Vaccum/Boost
guages on supercharged & normally aspirated gas
applications (like my Trans Am).

I've seen several pictures of Vacuum/Boost guages
being used by several people here, thus my question.

Since there is no Throttle Body like on a gas burner,
does the plenum ever see a vacuum state? If not,
then why install a vacuum/boost guage? Why not
only use one with positive psi readings from
0 ~ 30psi or so?

Thanks for any insight,

T.

There is no vacuum so most people install Boost gauges, not vacuum boost gauges.

Dmax...





Cut a little part off the wastegate line and put in the tee..... You will be set...... It seems like you are ahead of schedule on the install......
Take some pics!
