Fitting a boost gauge
I have an 2008RXP 215 and want to fit an Autometer boost gauge where one of the rear view mirrors are and am wondering how hard the install would be. How hard is it to remove a rear view mirror and what hose on the supercharger do I need to put a t piece in so I can get a boost reading?
Cheers in advance

Removing a mirror is easy. Just open the top hood, remove the bucket and reach in there. You will feel a wing nut on the back.
As far as where to get the boost reference from, the easiest place is on the intake manifold. If you look, on each of the 3 runners, there is a small nipple. Use a small drill bit to drill one of these out and the job is done.

What are the best/ waterproof/PWC type gauges?

Your going to want to cut a backing plate for the gauge because it's not a flat surface once the mirror piece is removed.
