    Quick question about a boost gauge install

    I bought a stock boost gauge, and UPS says it's going to be delivered today, so I guess I'll install it tomorrow. I was wondering what type of T fitting I need? I know it's a pretty easy install, you just install the T in the vacuum line that runs off of the wastegate, and run that through the grommet in the firewall. Can I get that T fitting at any Auto Zone or similar?

    the fitting should be included with the gauge.
    If you ever go back in time, dont touch anything.

    These are available at any auto parts store I'm assuming though? I don't feel like waiting for such a tiny part when the gauge is probably being delivered right now

    when i installed my boost gauge i threw away most of the install kit that came with gauge. it came with some hard lines and compression fittings with a tiny T fitting, instead i went down the pepboys and got a T fitting and some quality (not tiny stiff hard lines) vacuum tubing. there's posts somewhere about what size to get and such...

    I think I used the universal type of tee that has several ribs along each side to accomodate tubing of various sizes. I haven't had any issues.

    FWIW, my gauge is Autometer Sport Comp mounted in the Autometer gauge bezel and it works well for what I want it to do. I wired the backlight to the unused factory dimmer wiring for in the stereo head unit harness.
