???...so I'm thinking to myself..."Self, don't start screwin' with that turbo if you don't really know what to fiddle with." So my question is, if I was to get a boost gauge, where exactly does it tie into once I get it all run through the dashboard and get the wires under the hood? I appreciate the help.... O0

There are several places to put a T in a boost/vac tube. I have the Forge DV kit ready to go in and they have instructions for installing the pressure block on the left side of the engine. I don't have my car in front of me (or within 2,000 miles) so I can't take a picture. It's a pretty beefy line that connects a three-way junction to [I believe] the manifold on the forward-left corner just under the engine cover.

Will the vent still work despite the Gauge being there?

The thought of losing that vent irks me?

Anyone have it?
I don't have it yet (backordered) but AWE's description says that it keeps the functionality of the vent (though less flow, I'm sure.)

Okay so i'm looking at getting the K&N intake and lowering my car then i would like to get a boost gauge after that and then finally chip my car. But i have a few questions about the boost gauge and how to install it, i know you put it in the car where you want it i would want the vent guage but once the wires are there where do i hook it to and how hard is it to do that. I like think with some instructions i can be pretty mechanical. But i don't know how i feel about doing anything with the turbo. just looking to put me at some ease about installing it myself.

i just install the air conditioning one, but i think before you close it off, you should close off the vent, the vent is open to te ntire dash of the car, might as well close it. the oem air conditionig vent thingy is self contained you take it out it pulls evertthing out, would show you s picj but im at work


BTW, are you supposed to spike to 18 psi, then drop to then when your pushing it? and i drive i loose pressure anytthing above 8, it makes wierd noises and like spikes up and down.. think my dv is crapping out...
