where to get Boost gauge vacuum line and fittings?

Where is a good place to get boost gauge fittings and vacuum line? I know of this place but there has to be local store that might carry it right?

Fittings / Connectors : BoostController.com LLC - America's Source for High quality turbo boost controllers, silicone hose, and more performance products - 877-836-6155- precision boost control. Turbosmart Warehouse Distributor

And what size is the line normally used in our truck and gauges? thanks.

When I bought my gauges, the hose was too short that they sent to hook up. I went to Advanced Auto and bought 15' of 1/8'' vacum hose.(1/8'' inside diameter of the hose) It's tight but put some elbow grease on it and it will work great. As for the fitting you need a tee but the tee needs to have a restricter on the lead to the boost gauge. Mine came with it but I'm sure someone will chime in with where to get one.

Hope this helps

Sorry I didn't click on your link man, I see you found a place online. Now that i know you are looking for a local place I would recommend looking up dyno shops around you and asking them if they sell the Tee's. The hose can be bought anywhere pretty much

Why does the T need to have a restrictor on it? I don't recall the T I used having a restrictor, and I think I bought the T at a local speed shop.

The "T" fitting that came with my gauges came with metal ring inside the lead to the boost gauge. The instructions that came with it called it a restrictor and said for it to be the lead for the boost gauge hose. I might be wrong, or it might just be the way my gauges are set up. That's all I know.
