    Boost Gauge T Fitting

    I bought an autometer boost gauge kit, but it looks like the included T fitting is too small. What size T should I be using if I'm splicing into the BOV vacuum line?

    Thanks!

    Here's my suggestion (what I did):

    Go to any small, local auto parts store. Buy a couple inches of vacuum hose that will fit over the Bypass valve nipple. This way you don't have to cut the stock hose and you can always remove the boost gauge if you part out your car.

    Also, they'll have T fittings that are bigger on the top two nipples that connect the BPV vacuum hoses, and a smaller bottom nipple that will be small enough for the boost gauge vacuum hose to fit tightly on.

    I can't remember the exact size of the T fitting or vacuum hose I bought. But you can bring your boost gauge vacuum hose into the parts store, and find a T fitting that will work.

    Ah, that's a good idea, thanks guys. I only have one vehicle, so I guess I'll take the hose off in the parking lot and carry it in with me

    It's always scary working on my car when I have no other transportation to go get a tool or part if I get stuff apart and realize I don't have what I need. One afternoon I ended up walking four miles round trip to Autozone get a special wrench that I didn't have on hand
