Best way is to oder the block. You can tap into the line that is on top of the tb if you really dont want the block. I did the block and really like it. Was super simple to install and has a extra port if i need it for anything

Then you havr to get a T fitting and tap into the line that connects to the top of the tb. I didnt want to cut the line so i just got the block

I installed mine right off the turbo. I guess it shows an extra lb of boost of what it really is. You gotta get up under the car though

Eletrical module is under the hood that feeds signal to the gauge

I don't get that type of mpg anymore since I basically beat the shit out of this thing everyday
Even with that I am getting 24

Well I got my boost gauge installed. I went with ano auto meter 3303 sport comp 2 1/16 pod cup. I installed the gauge on my dash parallel to the a pillar with double sided tape. I changed out the weak bulb for a 194 xenon led and I'm very happy with it. Taped into dimmer switch for lighting. So now when my lights come on (auto) the gauge comes on. Will get pics up soon
