    Installing boost Gauge Help

    Im throwing a boost gauge on my 07 STI. Where should I connect the ground and power for my boost gauge. I'm thinking of just hooking it up to the cllock. Does anybody know which wires are the ground and power?

    Thanks

    That's what a multimeter is for

    They're pretty cheap, and if you're going to be doing work with any kind of electrical system, you should have one...

    should i be hitting 14-15 in every gear? I remember my old wrx it would have lower boost in 1st and 2nd and 3rd, 4th, and 5th would have the full boost.

    As stated earlier, but a multimeter or even a test light, it'll do a world of good and if you're working with electrical components, you should have one anyway
