  • HOW TO fit boost gauge

    The fitting of a boost gauge is the same as dump valve the only differance is the pipe from the fuel presure regulator go's in to the car to the boost gauge not the dump valve thay can both be fitted with no problems.

      How do you go about fitting a boost gauge and DV from the same place?

        Just use two T peaces or you can get a + shape as well

            I fitted my boost gauge today of the fuel presser regulator and now my turbo is making a funny noise, it used to make a heathy pusss noise's from the wastgate which you could here from the K&N but as soon as I have fitted the boost gauge the turbo has started to make a fluttering noise and randomly looses power?
            I thought maybe there was a leakage somewhere but I've check all the vac tube from the fuel presser regulator to the gauge looks good I just can't work it out anyone have an idea what else it could be or is it ment to flutter when a boost gauge is fitted??
            On the gauge it self the boost looks ok, just sits below 0.5 I think maybe the Actuator might be sticking and thats why I'm losing power sometimes?

              Problem sloved I knocked out one of the Vac tubes, the one that connects into a black box near the cat which in turn made the turbo flutter. :P silly me

                Hello,

                Please do you know where is aiming the second pipe plugged alongside that which goes to fuel pressure regulator? Engine Z16LET.

                What could happened, when after instaling boost gauge, I was riding 60miles with unplugged that second pipe? The engine in that time was making "whooos" sound after each throttle back (like a very quiet DV). I take interest what was happing in that moment, ..probably with air.

                  Right this has just gone stright over my head... I have never fitted a dump valve before so got no idea how to fit a boost gauge... does anyone have any pictures of one fitted ie under the bonnet with a little description of whats what and where things go...
                  Also where is the best place to buy a boost gauge?
                  Thanks
