    alternative boost taps

    i have been doing a lot of searching here and on the 2 other big sites and i read a lot of people are tapping their BOV boost line for their boost gauges. i assume this is the easiest line to tap, but aren't there other lines to tap as well? also, if anyone has any install tips for the defi bf boost, egt, and oil pressure i would appreciate it. thanks...

    Tap into the manifold vacuum line that's on the front of the manifold. That is where I tapped in for my SBC-id when I also had my Blitz turbo timer tapped into my BOV.

    thanks man. i do not currently have anything tapped into my BOV boost line, but i feel uncomfortable tapping into it - almost like it would be leeching boost from the BOV. maybe im just paranoid, but i feel like i have read something about that somewhere. oh well. anyways, would you mind explaining to me where exactly the boost line is. i was shipped to the bay area six weeks ago for work and thus cannot go outside and actually look under my car. i am trying to muster up as much intelligence as i can, so that when i get home, i can just bang out the install either way, thanks for the help...

    It's a little round thingy, about 1.5 in across (I'm guessing here).. maybe 3/4 inch tall? It's on the passenger side on the front of the manifold. It's sticking off a short bit of hose.
