boost guage

I installed my guages tonite and my boost is not working. I'm not convenced that the gauge isn't bad yet. But just to check where is the best place to splice in for the boost?

I spliced into the MAP line for my boost gauge. Also to check your gauge you could take an air hose and turn the air pressure down and then blow some air into your boost line to see if it moves the gauge.

yeah defnitely splice into the MAP sensor line, and mine wasn't working for a while either until I found a kink in the line going to the boost guage, so I would splice into that and check the hose for any kinks

Its a smaller silicone hose that runs from just under the turbo to the map sensor mounted on the passenger side of the firewall. Its a small diameter hose that kind of stands alone. Ill see if I can find a photo, I only knew which one it was becuase my gauge came with a picture illustrating where the map sensor line was
