    T bracket for boost gauge too small

    Ordered a gauge about a week ago, and it came in and the t piece they supplied is a bit too small for the hose on the manifold I was going to connect it to. Does Home Depot sell t pieces with reducers to fit the hose going to the gauge? I found one on eBay but it is in Hong Kong and I don't want to wait a month for it to come in.

    Go to an auto parts store and buy a set of hose connections, Home Depot likely wont have what you're after.

    What boost gauge did you buy? I know I had a difficult time when I installed mine but i added a little silicon spray to the end of the hose and it helped.

    I added an autometer one but the hose off the manifold is too big for the bracket they gave me, so I did what gregroot198521 said and went to an autozone and bought a universal t bracket with integrated reducers just now. Just waiting on the engine to cool a little before sticking my hands through to pull the hose from the cabin.

    Skip HD. Go to Autozone or Pep Boys. I've bought "kits" there that were only a couple bucks and had several sizes of T and I pieces in a single package. It's always been successful regardless of my car at the time since you get several options and one always works. <$5

    It sounds like the OP already did exactly that, but thanks.
