View Full Version : Can i use this for my T fitting for my boost/vac gauge on B5 A4?

I bought a brand new autometer gauge, sadly it came with the wrong installation items, so i improvised and made this, will this work? Its 1/4" barbs, couldnt find smaller ones, and at the T is a ferrule with 1/8" npt adapter.

any problems that might arise from using this?

1/4ths might be a little to big...

mine were 3/16ths and they were a tight squeeze

1/8th is the best fit...

go to an autoparts place and purchase something around 5/32
and get that same size hose.
