It's easier than replacing your spark plugs.

Follow the included instructions provided with your gauge. If you need pics of where I ran my line from the firewall let me know and I'll post it. Do a search and you'll see where people t-off to get vaccuum/boost readings.

Next gauge I'd recommend getting is an AFR, especially if you plan on tuning your car.

Innovative Wideband if you want data logging and precise accuracy, but don't mind a pain in the ass install.

AEM Wideband, if you don't need data logging with just the same accuracy. Easier to install.

If you wouldn't have said you were from Minnesota, we wouldn't have known. Why don't you fill out your profile.

Boost gauge is easy, EGT is not.

You'll have to drill the manifold to put the EGT prior to the turbo. If you're running stock boost, sell it.
