Default SRT Boost gauge

hey guys got another question.


I bought an SRT4 boost gauge and I want to know is the vaccum line that from the back of the intake manifold to the brake booster the best place to messure boost and vaccum? Where is the best place to splice for power to the gauge? Also the guy i bought it from did not give me the fitting that screws on the back of the gauge. I was thinking I could get some hose clamps and that would be fine. Let me know what you guys think..


Thank you!!

go to Autozone or pepboys and buy the Autometer boost line. it should come with extra fittings and the line.
then pick up a hose mender T and plug in to the line going from the back of the intake manifold to the brake booster.

near the bottom right corner of the PCM there is a rubber cap on the fire wall poke a hole in it or cut a slit into it and feed your boost line into the cab.
go into the cab and under the dash up high you'll see the other side and pull the rest of it through.
dont bend the line and feed it to the spot were your gauge is gonna sit.
as for wiring the light, hook into the dash lights
when its all hooked up start it up and the gauge should read around 15-10 vac if you rev it, it will read 0psi

thats it.

EDIT: before you install that gauge make sure that the needle is sitting at 0
alot of those SRT-4 gauges go bad. the needle sits off.
alot of us just upgraded to the Ultralight 30/30 boost gauge its the same look just without the green letters and havent had any problems since.
my stock gauge want bad around 15k the needle was sitting on 3psi of boost when the car was off. just becareful with that gauge .

The brake booster line is by far the easiest to tag onto. As far as power, in the wires going from under your steering wheel you can splice into a wire, not sure which one I'll check when I get off of work, but if you use a wire tester you can tell which one to splice into by seeing which is hot when your lights are on. This way the gauge will only light up when your lights are on, so it's not on all the time .

Here's the pic I promised not sure if everyone's else's pt has the same light blue and red connectors or if it was left over from someone's hack job, but the black wire with yellow strip should be the one you need. It will allow the light on the gauge to come on only when you're lights are on.
