    AEM Boost/Wideband Install

    Hey, I have a quick question. I am gonna install my AEM boost and AEM wideband tomorrow into my smy gauge cluster. I have all the mechanical stuff down. I was wondering if I could wire both of the gauges to the fuse box? Where are other reasonable places to wire both gauges?
    Thanks.

    Also I was wondering where do you put the brass pieces for the boost gauge? I know where the T fitting goes but not sure about the brass parts.

    The wideband will need a good power source that comes on with the motor, so if you want to run it to the fuse box the simplest way would be to get a fuse tap and put it into the ignition fuse. (AEM recommends to use the ignition). Plenty of continuous strong current to power the sensor in the exhaust.

    Boost gauge, I wouldn't think it's power needs would be that great, so just follow the instructions on the box or ask AEM what kind of power source it needs. Again, a fuse tap would be the easiest thing if you want to run it into the fuse box.

    Everything went really smooth! It was easier than I thought it would be. For now I am just doing the boost gauge until I do a little more to the car. I have the pod cover in the mail and should be here Monday. Thanks for the advice everyone! We used the tap a fuse and went into the ACC fuse. Then just had to ground the gauge and that is all. It has its own illumination built in so that is nice. The SMY was a great fit and turned out really well!

    I will post pics in my journal/build thread.
