Rob, you should be able to use the kit from what I see. My boost gage set up did not come with a tee also. I went to the auto parts bought a T and just spliced the boost gage line that is directly under the steering colum. It goes through the fire wall by the steering colum. I think its a black vacumm looking line. This way your factory boost gage and the after market gage will both work.

You got the right hose there. You will need to go and get a tee to tie into the factory line that is behind the dash were your factory boost gauge is at. That looks like it is the correct kit to me. You are a plumber you know about swedge fittings don't you? :LOL

You think JUST MAYBE they'd put Oil Gauge AND BOOST GAUGE on the lable,
for people like me with a Medical condition,  :LOL :LOL :LOL

I'll hunt for a tee tomorrow, can't do anything till the Pod gets here anyway, hells ya I know all about compression ftg's, I sell them all day, but only as small as 1/8od, this is smaller than that #@(&$%(#@$%(@#$%)@#$

Chris, that dam gauge came in like 1 day, woo hoo, thanks for the link.
I'll prob wait a month now for the Pod  [smilie=fingersx.gif]

When I had my mechanical autometer gauge like above I found a vaccuum line rubber coupling that reduced down from the tee to accept the nylon. I just used a zip tie for security and never had a problem running upwards of 15lbs of boost. Let me know if you need one of these Rob?

Rob, I have the same gauge. You just have to open the instructions. That paper covers few different gauges they offer to include the boost gauge. You will need to pick up a tee and elbow to complete the install properly though.

WELL I'LL BE DIPPED IN SHIT, THERE WAS INSTRUCTIONS FOR A BOOST GAUGE IN THE INSTRUCTIONS  :LOL


Directions, I don't need any stinking Directions.
Isn't that like asking for directions when your lost ???

On the way home from Cecil last time, I got seperated from Gator and Ray (Big Daddy)
instead of stopping for directions, I ended up in down town Philly on a Saturday night
