I hope this is the right forum to ask. I've done a search on boost gage here, and I found many posts about how to install them. I also used the instructions for the OEM single boost gage. I have an autometer boost gage, and all I need to do now is to cut the hose off the (stock) BOV and insert the t-fitting. Hesitant to do that, I want to find out whether there are any precautions I need to know before cutting the hose (the thought of the car immobilized due to some error in my part doesn't seem that appealing to me). So, my question is:
For those of you who cut the hose off the BOV to get the boost pressure measurement, are there any potential problems or things to be cautious of? I know a sub 20psi is rather low, so barb fittings, vacuum rubber hose, zip ties, and teflon tape should seal the pressure real well, but is there anything that needs special attention other than pressure-leak -wise?
Any input would be appreciated, especially if you've experienced some problems and figured out what not to do.
Thanks in advance
