View Full Version : Boost Gauge Install

11-19-2006, 07:17 PM
Well I got myself a boost gauge and just cut out my vent to accommodate it. Anyhow what hardware will I need to hook it up? Would it make sense just to buy the entire install kit for like $10?

BTW I highly recommend doing this as it was really easy and the result are fantastic. <$50 and <1 hour gets you a very clean looking boost gauge setup. I'll take some pics if anybody‘s interested.

So its installed but you still want to know how to install it?

I bought the gauge but now I need the tubing, connectors, wiring, ect. It's mounted but it's not installed.

DON'T use the hood-release grommet for your pass-through. That is, unless you can reseal it with ~1/2 tube of RTV silicone. I had about 2" of water in my back seat following rain after I installed mine.

you need the tubing and a connector for the back of the gauge... if your gauge has the bulb all you need is any kind of wire...

yes, the gauge reads vacuum and boost from the same line.

Follow AWE's instructions here: http://www.awe-tuning.com/pages/faq/awefaq_main.cfm?FAQ=41

Pretty easy install as far as running the vac hose and wiring for lighting. They have good suggestions for where to pass the hose from the cabin to the engine bay.
