    Aem boost gauge install question

    So I recently bought a AEM digital boost gauge and I was wondering where it is I tap into for it to read the boost pressure, Is it the line that goes from the boost solenoid on the passenger side to the turbo, or do i tap the tee off line that already goes to the turbo or what?

    Does anyone have any detailed written instructions or a write-up with pictures? A video is nice but I would rather have something in hand that I can refer to.

    This will be for a 2014 WRX installing the AEM boost gauge. I also will need instructions for the AEM air/fuel gauge as well.

    It's not too difficult...

They are great at electronics but have only done boost and air/fuel gauges for close friends and on their own vehicles. So they can do it but they would like some detailed instructions.

    It doesn't make them less capable of being able to do it they just want some instructions. If you guys were going to install something you would probably want to know the best way to do it too.

    If they can't handle " Splice it into the line coming from the BPV" as instructions, they have no need to be around a performance vehicle.

    Since I have never done it before I didn't known how far to splice from the bypass. That was the question where to splice not how to do it. Just like where you put the bung for the O2 sensor on the downpipe can make a difference.

    In theory, there's just boost running through that hose. There's no temperature change, or anything you can "get too close to" so wherever you can splice, have it look nice, and easily get to your gauge, that's where you should splice it. I'm going to guess about 10" off the BPV Nipple would be prime location.
