    DynoTune Boost Gauge Installation

    Guys... I'm sure this has been brought up, but don't have time to search! For those of you that have installed this gauge... did you follow the recommendation on mounting the transducer??? The installation instructions clearly state to remotely mount the transducer with rubber hose, do not mount directly to the intake I want to plumb this baby right into the IC blockoff along with my sense line for the RRFPR! I don't want to have it connected by tubing and want it as close to the intake as possible Any thoughts?

    I mounted directly to the intake and when motor got really hot after long high speed runs it would read 99psi . I redid it (followed instructions) and moved transducer up front, where it is cooler, and no more bad readings

    as a side note if you have polarized lens in your glasses you can't read the gauge

    13.5 psi , a "T" in the RRFPR worked for me

    I mounted my display gauge in the handle bar foam of my x boat. It turned out pretty sweet. Sits nice and flush and very visible at high speeds
