Anyone fitted a boost gauge to their car yet?
and if so, where do you T into the pipes?


Would love to know how the turbo is working, what boost, etc..

This is also something I've been interested in ... but not got round to it yet. I'm sure I've seen someone on here who's replaced their clock with a boost gauge ...

Thanks for that link. I thought there would be a pipe somewhere where you could fit a t-piece in and take the pressure of there.

No, you have to drill and tap (or screw in a brass connector, it will cut ally, but you would be better to tap it) as there is nothing that provides a boost pressure feed.

If you can find an excuse to remove the inlet manifold then do so, I am currently looking into the restrictions of the butterfly which reduces to 2" before the manifold and may well cut out and enlarge to 2.5" for bettter flow.

It is better to see pressure at the inlet rather than pressure before a possible restriction.

I know there is a grommet near the battery, which feeds through to the passenger footwell. I used it to send wiring to the boot for my subwoofer
