    Shard, you tapped the vacuum hose that goes to the BOV for your boost gauge?

    Did you have to unmount the intercooler and move it back?? Doesn't look like I have much slack on that line, especially with my new BOV.

    No, but, it was kind of a pain in the ass. Just got to pull on the hose fairly hard, and make sure you have some soapy water on the T fitting to slide it in easier. I also used a pair of needle nose pliers to help hold it in place.

    The Blow off valve hose is 1/4, and autometer line is 1/8. I have a post about why the right size connectors are so hard to find, because it really is, for me at least.
