    Fitting a boost gauge to a LPT

    looking at this today, was merely going to drill and place a fitting on the hard pipe just before the throttle body, right? wrong? better way to do it?

    Either run a silicone pipe to the tree peice above the throttle housing there will be some spare outlets that have caps on them or either fit a T peice in the boost hose that goes to the turbo.

    What he said

    I've got mine plumbed into the vacuum tree on the inlet manifold. This has the advantage of telling you what pressure is after the throttle flap.
