Gauge Pod

I found a line on a gauge pod and gauges for $200 online and wondering if this is about right for this. Comes with everything needed to install (Except whatever you use to connect the hose from the boost gauge to the turbo i think(didnt see it in the pics)). That being said i am wondering about the install; where is the best place for egt sensor, where to install boost gauge. My egt gauge right now is on the DP from the previous owner and i heard that isnt as good as on the manifold or something. Just looking for any insight...Thx guys

That sounds good if you're getting the gauges and everything....the line for the boost gauge and parts only cost about $5 at the max. Put the Pyro in the drivers side exhaust manifold where it turns to go up the Up pipe. Everyone with the OBS is putting the boost line in the line to the MAP sensor with a T fitting. The line comes off of the passenger side intake and runs up to the sensor mounted on the firewall.

you can use 1/8 inch air hose for you boost gauge an you can tap into the map sensor with a T fitting...an you will want to put you egt probe in the dp...if you put it in your up pipes it will give a a reading obviously but not the ones you want to see...also it will be a lilttle easier to put in in the dp...an yes all the gauges an gauge pod for 200 bucks is a deal..got my mine for the same price from glowshift... an it came with EVERYTHING...

If you put it in the Manifold you know the actual temp...after turbo is inaccurate as the turbo consumes heat energy.
