    prosport premium boost gauge problem PLEASE HELP!!!

    I installed a prosport premium electronic boost gauge a while back and everything was working great. however it crapped out on me after about 2 weeks.

    After some deductive reasoning I have confirmed that the problem was not actually the gauge itself, but the electronic converter. I mounted the converter underneath the hood to an existing bracket on the intercooler and thing that either heat or water during the rain/car washing could have fried it. should I be running the vacuum line all the way into the firewall and mounting the converter in the cabin or should it be fine underneath the hood?

    Thanks for the replies in advance!

    Mine is under the hood, I have it placed away from the intercooler. It is zip tied to a bracket behind the battery. I currently have been running it since about November last year without any issues what so ever. Good luck!

    I have one too and it's mounted under the hood on the firewall. Have had no problems since I've had it.

    im not sure how the converter works, i am guessing the same way as my Defi gauge. you run a vac line into an electronic little converter box and then that wire plugs into the back of the gauge. If this is the case youll want to keep the vacuum line as short as possible. then run the electronic wire through the firewall, into the cabin to your gauge

    That's what I figured too. The vac line should be as short as possible. That's why I kept it on the firewall and it's prob 8" total.

    How did you confirm it isn't the gauge? Out of curiosity.
