Default Boost Gauge tie in

Where are you tying your boost gauge into ???? I've looked at the intake manifold ,,,,, and I'm not real sure where I want to tie in to it with the boost gauge. I do not want to cut the factory plastic hoses.

I tapped mine into the brake booster hose off the manifold. This is where the DC factory connects the SRT-4 boost gauge. I would recommend a metal tee fitting NAPA 715-1817. Some mis-informed people do not recommend this as they feel you some how may lose the brakes if the tee fitting blows off, this is complete bull $hit! The factory uses no clamps on this hose and it will not blow off, unless maybe you're running around 25+ psi boost and in that case you need to clamp the factory hose. I have never had a problem except for using a plastic tee, which never failed, but became very soft so I replaced it with the above metal tee.

I cut my hose and installed the tee. You could always add a piece of hose and place in between the factory hose and the manifold using the additional small hose off the manifold.

Works Great!

It also pulls vacuum which will further reduce the liklihood of the t-piece dislodging. Id suggest a metal one too.
