Boost Readings

Just out of curiosity, where do you guys have your boost gauge tied in? Mine is in the map line, just wondering how many other people did it this way, and what is the most accurate?

Mine is also in the MAP line. The most accuate position is where the AIH plug is. You can get an AIH delete fitting that is ready for a boost fitting.

I have had it in both places, the AIH is the way to go, as Ditty mentioned.

I'm also using the MAP hose.

I think it's just as accurate as putting it in the plenum, as it practically already is in the plenum plus a few extra inches - Wherever you have your "tee" for the gauge - I'm about mid way up.

I did the AIH delete with the boost fitting. You will notice alot more white smoke at startup in cold temps, but I think its the best place to install also. Here is a writeup.http://www.dfuser.com/Install%20Guid...2004-05-02.pdf
