Do you tap into the map sensor line. i was thinking about the vacume canister line. Now i just need to wire up some power to the gauge and fill the tank with some more fuel to see if it works. 1/8 sounds like a good size.so i take it the inside diameter does not matter for a boost signal for the gauge.
Then you pressurizing part of the vacuum dependent system (hvac. brake booster. vacuum reservoir. etc) that should never see pressure above 1 atmosphere.

Also im pretty sure its 5mm vac line thats used. Do not change the one to the map sensor (on the false bulkhead). also silicon is not too good on the crankcase breather line with the one way valve.
Is it a 1/4 or 3/16? Basically you can hook your boost gauge up to anything thats plumbed in after the throttle body. except the fuel reg hose. but thats at the front of the engine anyway.

I Have Both. Just Want To Know If It Is Some Odd Size Before I Cut.
Is it a 1/4 or 3/16? Generally needs about 2m for an lpt or 4m for an fpt with the boost gauge in the dash. Joined dec 16. 2006 · 2 posts.
Before I Cut The Line To Begin My Boost Gauge Installation (My Vdo Did Not Come With A Line And Fittings. But That Is Not A Problem). I Would Like To Know The Size Vacuum T You Guys Have Been Using In The Bypass Vacuum Line (The One Most Guys Tap Into).
Would just be a matter of altering the size of the clock aperture (if needed) in the original fascia and securing the gauge with its glass surround and bracket at rear!! I just order some 4mm and 6mm for all my vacuum lines that i got going from boost gague. external wastegate. turbo. and the ecbc.

I Came Across My Boost Gauge Not Working About A Year Ago.
Do not change the one to the map sensor (on the false bulkhead). also silicon is not too good on the crankcase breather line with the one way valve. I took the line off my car and it fit onto the vacuum fitting on the map (manifold air pressure) sensor from the boost gauge kit. Unless you put a one way check valve on the main line that connects the upper intake to the tree. the vacuum tree is going to be pressurized no matter what you do.

You can also use a copper tubing kit. i have a buddy who runs his like that. My kit came with a barb fitting. Then drilled a small hole in the cap.

I traced the yellow boost/vacuum line from the blower through the firewall and directly behind the glove box like the other guys stated. The nice thing about using gauge lines is that they bolt onto the back of the gauge and you wont have to worry about it leaking. Urlosn hpt pcm tune. headers. 1.9s.
