boost gauge install

i just got my boost, tranny, and pyro gauges. two questions, should the pyro go before or after the turbo? and where should i insert my "T" for the boost gauge? will the wastegate actuator line work?

Pyro goes pre turbo, otherwise you are wasteing the gauge. See pic...

Boost, the wastegate line is a vac line not a pressure line so no. You want to T into the MAP sensor line or drill and tap the Y pipe. You can also delete the intake air heater and tap that location. See Pic...

actualy the boost guage the put in is a mechanical. look at the pictures and they just show where you drill and tap for the fitting.

for your pyro guage I would drill and tap the exhaust manifold on the drives side about two inches befor the flange. it is a easy spot to get at and drilling and tapping the manifold is a much better way than using the clamp style hoders that are just an exhaust leak waiting to happen.

Two years and not one leak... Three years on my 99 and no leak... Both are easy but there is nothing wrong with the drill and clamp!

I'm having issues with my new boost guage not showign any boost. My Attitude display is reading it though. I am going to have to look at the lines again and make sure I tapped into the right line. I hadn't thought of tapping the y-pipe!
