    Boost gauge instructions can be found at Subaru Parts.com in the WRX section. Just find the boost gauge and the install instructions are included as a link.

    EGT gauge installation requires you to drill and tap the manifold to install the probe. In this regard you need to remove the manifold because if you drill and tap in on the car, metal shavings are going to run through your turbo. Tap the driver's side manifold and you won't disturb your uppipe. Don't install the probe in the uppipe.

    I assume you can tap power and find ground.

    Scoobymods.com may have covered both subjects as well. Good luck with your install.

    Here's where I installed my EGT sensor. I welded a bung onto the manifold.

    The gauge or the sender? The sender goes on the manifold on the Drivers side as clos to the exhaust port on the head as you can get.

    But his picture is in the passenger side manifold.
    I was thinking of doing the pass side cause i will do the uppipe anyway.
    Hey,is it correct 4 inches away from the head?
    thanks

    The reason most people install on the driver's side is to avoid the uppipe. Insatall as close to the exhaust port as you can if you want good readings. If 4 " is the best you can do, OK.

    When have to take the manifold to install the uppipe,,i will get the manifold and take it to a welder,,and weld the bung to it.
    The bung can stay 4inches away??thats what says in the EGT gauge manual.
    If i place it before the uppipe there will be no accurate readings?
    thanks

    I placed the bung about 4cm away from the exhaust port on the #3 cylinder (the front passenger cylinder). I put it on this side because I installed my uppipe at the same time. Also, I've heard that the #3 cylinder is the last in the fuel distribution series, so it is most likely to run lean.

    Tuca: I didn't take any pics of the manifold when it was out of the car (I wish I had). The hole points almost straight towards the front of the car. I drilled a 1 inch hole in the top heat sheld to allow the wires to come out.
