Gauges came in UPS today! Couple questions.

Ordered an ISSPRO gauge kit from DieselManor, any quick tips on install, maybe things to look out for? I plan on doing it in the morning. Also my PHP Phoenix will be here Tuesday or Wednesday next week!

Thanks fellow PS fanatics!

Pretty straight forward. Be very careful with the manifold. Mine has 2 "sets" of threads in the bore because I messed up. I got very lucky and the probe took to the second set with no leaks, but dont count on being so lucky. Take it nice and slow. If you tap the intake manifold, same thing, but I would suggest an AIH plug, it's cleaner.

I used a tee in the boost sensor hose, But i later got a AIH delete plug from Riff Raff diesel so I may move it to that port, when you drill the port in the exhaust manifold start with small drills and work up to the final size that will keep the chips small. when I did mine I also took a pice of steel wire and taped a magnet to it and fished around in the hole to get any chips out and I used a vaccum to make sure it was clean!
