new to the gauge install....Is that the only/best "vacuum/ boost source" to install the "T" fitting to? where did you run the tubing in the engine compartment to get it to the firewall? it seems like you would have to run it all the way around the one side of the engine bay to make a clean install!. I want the install clean and tidy so its not to noticeable and out of the way when doing service and cleaning.

Yep T or boost block and yea its a good run... Considring where the gauge will be - go thru the fw at the hood latch grommet... my setup does this and its neat as pie ( tech is different but the principle is the same)
