    Installed boost gauge and riva hks bov :)

    This afternoon I installed a boost gauge in the console lid and also installed the riva hks bov kit.
    I was surprised at how easy the install of the bov kit was. I expected the hose to be a pita to get on the SC and TB. I'll take some pics of the install when I get a chance.
    I have ordered the r&d ff exhaust and intake grate for my 2012 sho. looking forward to getting them.
    Is anyone from sydney going to the sydney watercraft ride day this Sunday?

    This is the boost gauge. Its a marine gauge from Hardin Marine

    The Riva HKS BOV. Rather than tapping the manifold i tee'ed into the MAP sensor hose using my own 4mm vac hose. I decided not to use the hks supplied hose and inline filter to make a cleaner and less complicated install. You can see i have tee'ed off the BOV vac line for the boost gauge. It Works perfectly fine!

    If it is a heavy boost gauge like the autometer ones...the gauge mounted on the glove box lid can be a problem with waves. It kept causing my lid to open because of the weight so I relocated it to the deck.

    The gauge itself isn't very heavy hence why i decided to mount it on the lid. Plus putting in this location it is easily visible. If it causes a problem i may look to re-locate it.
    This is the gauge i used but in black http://www.hardin-marine.com/c-1392-boost.aspx
