Forced Induction - Boost/Vac source for boost gauge??
05-20-2006, 03:02 PM
Ive searched around, looked in the car, searched again but cant figure out a good place to hook up my boost gauge. Any line I see is gonna need a serious reduction for the gauge feed line, am I missing something?

Nope you are track:D Good line to tee into is the brake booster hose. There are also some small vacuum hoses near the PCM that you can tee into as well, those are smaller line a boost guage line.

Tapped into my booster line it was the easiest to get to, though some people dont like doing that cause if somthing was to go wrong you would lose your brakes.

yea im debating about getting a new line and taping in somewhere else. my brakes have been a little mushy lately, not sure if its worth the risk. but i know alot of people haven't had any problems. where else besides the brake booster can we tap in?

I use this small, black, cylindrical thing (about 1" diameter and 1.5" long) located just to the right of the PCM. It already has two vacuum lines going into it, I just "teed" off from it. If you need a pic, I can take one.

are you guys talking about the line that comes out the intake manifold that is "T" ed for the a/c. im thinking when i do mine since i dont have a/c to put it right to the fitting right off the manifold
you folks think that will be ok or is it too small. the way i see it the air is there coming from the manifold
