    Vaccum and boost gauge

    I have just bought a triple gauge pod with gauges from someone that has decided to get another set-up. The gauges that are installed in the pod are boost, oil temp, and vaccum. I am am a little confused. Is it possible to install both a vaccum and a boost gauge? thanks for any help

    I don't see why it isn't possible. You could probably even use the same vacuum hose coming out of the bay and then split it near your gauges. Your vacuum gauge is just for reading pressure when Boost is < 0 right?

    the guy you bought it from shoulda used a boost/vacuum gauge instead of two seperate ones for <0 & >0... though with a dedicated gauge to each one maybe the resolution is higher...

    its just going to be that one gauge is going to be pegged while the other it working. So I am sure the needles are going to be dancing all over the place. As stated you could just run one line into the cabin and just tee it at the gauges
