Boost sensor??

Where is the best place to mount a boost sensor from autometer. I have mine mounted in the bung on the intake elbow and the gauge says I've hit 42 lbs of boost! Is that even posible with a stock turbo on a 04, cause I didn't think it was.

stock should run about 20-24
i would take it at the same spot as stock. there is a black hose on the passenger side of the intake that runs up to the map sensor. that's the stock boost sensor.

I would leave it in the bung..

42 is possible with a spike..it wont do that consistently.

If you tap into the map sensor (as said above) your boost gauge will bounce.

Hmm. Had no idea it would bounce. Good to know though.
