    Question The New guy... i have a ? about gauges

    I am the proud new owner of a 02 sti... The person that i purchased the car from installed the 3 gauges where the clock is supposed to be... however he never quite hooked them up. I am new to the turbo world and im not sure how i can complete this. It is boost, oil temp, and oil pressure.. Is there a site that will give me instructions and possibly pictures to help me through this?? any help is appreciated.. Thanks...

    Boost is usually tapped just after the BPV
    Oil Temp/Pressure has galley plugs under the TMIC and behind the alternator, or can use a sandwich plate between the block and the oil filter

    See if they're tapped properly, and then it's an issue of wiring.

    Yes, those are the typical connections. See also:
