    Smile Where to tap into for a boost gauge???

    Hey guys,

    Need a little help. I'm going to be installing my vacuum/boost gauge this weekend and just wanted to ask which vacuum hose to tap into, or preferred spot to tap into?
    I'm sure some of you have installed a boost gauge so just wanted to get your opinion.

    By the way, I have a 2007 F-12X.

    Thanks,
    Martin.

    Mine was installed into a tee that went to the front MAP sensor but others have mounted them elsewhere, I believe. My location shows vacuum/boost [with the right gauge].

    What kind of boost gauges are you using that are waterproof? Also, where are you mounting them?

    Thanks!

    I used an Autometer stainless Marine duty 30" thru 30 PSI and mounted it through the glove box lid on my F12X.

    Just to throw in my two cents... I use a Autometer 4603

    It's a 2 5/8 gauge so it's larger and easy to read. Liquid filled so you know it's sealed against water intrusion and it dampens vibrations on the needle. It looks nice and works well.

    I've never mounted it permanently. I just zip tie it somewhere when I need to do testing.
