    I don't know what you use as a reference, but that tee was textbook. He even used Swagelok fittings, they don't get much better in terms of reliability and simplicity. Yeah, "jimmy rig"...whatever.

    It's a great model for how to tee off for your boost gauges. You can also tee off the BOV line.

    well as i said before i'm the last person to give advice on guages or anything like that just from the looks it looked it but from what you say i am mistaken and i apologize for my view. From what i expected was sort've a plug and play type of thing

    'Jimmy rig', 'Swagelok' fittings....man these are all foreign to me

    Just used what the auto store had.....Yes you can tap off the BOV point....Perhaps like this...(but this is the T point for my MBC)
