    Problem installing 3 gauge pack help!

    My car is currently equipped with OEM single boost gauge with T connector. When I opened up the package (3 gauge pack bought used), this is what saw. Do I just connect this black tubing into the existing T connector for the boost gauge? What's the purpose of this golden insert in the photo? Existing boost gauge tubing doesn't have such thing.

    Your help is appreciated!

    take it out and look, there should be a pin hole sized hole in that brass thing. hook it up without, if your boost gauge needle is erratic then use the brass adapter.

    what's the safe way to mount wire in the engine bay? I need to run a wire under the engine for the temp sensor.

    there's really no right way. just try and avoid hot engine parts and moving parts. use copious amounts of zip ties to secure your wires.
