Making a Drive Pressure setup

Need an Autometer Z Series 0-60 psi gauge. Send me info with the price and everything that comes with the gauge. I'd like to have it here by Thursday. Lowest bidder gets it. Thanks, Logan

I would get a 100psi gauge, what turbo are you running? You will need about 12" or so of copper 1/8" tubing to go from the exhaust manifold to the plastic 1/8" line to the gauge. Make a loop (or 3-4 of them) around a piece of 1.5" tubing (or similar)... Then a union.

It is the exhaust pressure to drive the turbo, use this to compare to boost.
