    Where to tap boost gauge

    So I have my SBC iD tapped into the vacuum hose of my BOV. Now that I'm getting my Blitz BLM boost gauge, where do I tap it?

    Doesn't the SBC-iD tell you boost?

    Tap it further down the line?

    Pardon my ignorance, but what/where is the FPR line?

    Shard -- yes, my SBC iD does tell boost, but since I'm guetting my UTEC I want to try it's closed loop BC ability. If I like it, I might sell my SBC iD. So, I'll need a boost gauge.

    Here are the directions for the installation of the stock boost gauge. I did my boost gauge this way. https://ssl.autocenter.net/webparts/acatalog/page1.html

    I pulled rull real vac hose into the cabin and tapped into that with the small diameter Blitz line. It's easier to find connectors that will work with the affected hoses, too.
