    GP1800 boost gauge

    Looking for some info on vacuum/boost gauges. If using a strictly mechanical boost gauge, if one already has a vacuum line from a BOV valve tapped into the intake manifold, you would only need to put a T fitting in the line and run a line from the T to the gauge correct?

    If you use a digital gauge, I would assume the sending unit is tapped in the same way? Also where do you guys tie in the electrical?

    Thanks in advance.

    I tapped another hole for boost reference. I personally don't like using ts.

    For power I have mine on a switch and direct to battery. Reason being I have found if you warm afr sensor before the water hits it and leave on for a second after you shutdown the sensors last longer. Plus it's an easier install imo then tapping into factor harness.

    Do you guys happen to have a picture of it mounted and which gauge you went with? I'm leaning towards the mechanical gauge route.

    I have a PBS-1 digital boost and wideband. The boost having a recall is awesome to me. And water resistant. Works good.
