    Defi Red Racer Boost Gauge Help for a Noob.

    Okay, So I got a good deal on a defi red racer boost gauge used on ebay ( original owner sold his car ), but anyways...I'm going to buy the smy gauge cluster to mount it. I have done an endless amount of research on installing it, I think I've got everything figured out pretty well except for exactly where to install the "t" fitting (which I will need to buy because he had it on an audi which used a special fitting). Does anybody have a good picture that could point it out to me or a link to one?
    The car is a 2013 wrx. Thanks for the help.

    Here you go.

    Make sure it comes with the wiring harness.

    Thank you! I asked about the wiring harness and he said it is included.
    One other quick question, can I get to this without removing the intercooler?

    You don't need to remove the IC for this. You may need to remove the IC to get the sending wire through the firewall into the car.

    From what I have read going through the driver side fender is easier, so I think I will go that route. I installed rally armour flaps a few weeks ago so I'm familiar with working on the inner fender liner.

    Sounds good. I had power wire for the amp running that route which is why I used the location behind the IC.

    I keep telling myself I'm done spending money on mods.....then I keep finding these deals, 120 shipped.
    Last week I picked up a invidia q300 catback barely used for 450, I love good deals!

    Yep, that's going to be the easiest way on the 3rd gens. It's the way I ran all my wiring for gauges and lights switches.
