    Oem boost gauge install question

    Alright so its time for me to install this. Is it just me or is the boost gauge vac line thinner than the one im suppose to splice into and use a t-fitting on. Could some one tell me what size t-fitting to use on this install. I got the vac line run to the gauge through the firewall but am hesitant to cut until i know forsure what t-fitting to use. Thanks

    its going to be a pain in the ass to get on the T fitting. the hard plastic line dosent stretch very well. just get the t connector that fits into the vacume hose and stretch the hard line over it. if you search hard enough you will find one that can fit into the vac line with a smaller outlet for the guage line. its just kind of a search thing.

    the easy way to do it is get a small piece of the vacum line ad a small piece of the guage line and go to a plumbing store and match the best one.

    hope that helps

    so the t-fitting i need is not going to be all the same on the 3 connections. Since one hose is bigger then another i have one that fits the smaller hose for the gauge, but what stopped me from installing it was the one on the manifold looks bigger.

    The one on mine has a smaller line for the gauge than the line for the BPV. Since I bought mine used from another person without the T fitting, I had to make one since I couldn't find one that had a reduced size on one outlet.
    In the end, I went to Lowes and bought brass fittings and used teflon tape to make sure there was a proper seal. It turned out a little longer than the stock fitting, but works just as well.
