    Installed my boost gauge- yay me. lol

    First was the engine bay. Started with the t fitting. Added the little filter-



    Located, cut and fed the line through the firewall grommet-



    Ziptied line out of the way of anything, tried to keep it stealthy-



    Put IC back in, line barely noticable-



    On to the interior. Disassembled it all, FUN-



    Wanted to mount gauge to cluster bezel, so I marked the center, cut base of pod to fit, and mounted-



    Slotted bezel for wiring-



    Test fit-



    Ran hose to remote sender-



    Mounted gauge-



    Wired it up to the radio/ac harness-



    All buttoned back up-




    Testing-

    Daytime-


    Nighttime-



    I like it. Clean, no visible wiring, and doesnt stand out.

    Looks real good! Ill be doing the same soon this week. I just ordered the 2 gauge pod for the cluster bezel cant wait. I didn't know that there was a grommet there. As of right now my vacuum line is fed through the one thats above the turbo heat shield which is kind of out of the way...
