    boost gauge goes to your vacuum or if you have dumpvalve can fit it to that hose, as that also goes to the vacuum

        u need something like tht to tap into the radiator hose then the sensor threads into the adaptor. i dont have any idea about the size of the radiator hose, maybe someone can help with that?...........

        on a similar topic has anyone fitted an oil pressure gauge themselves, ive heard the usual sandwich plates dont fit for some reason!?

          The water temp can be accessed by pushing right stalk button in 4 times, on the fourth time keep it held in for approx 10 secs till display changes on centre console. Then press 5 times for temp.

              weekly checks of the coolent to see if it gets low will solve that.


              eg temp gauge an wideband would be better

                I have the coolant temp up on the screen all the time. But it would be handy to have a separate gauge..

                why oh why does it not have a gauge as standard!

                    This means that if you turn off the car and start it, you have the temperature on?
                    How is that possible, I mean how did you do it?

                      God only knows, considering the advice in handbook about not boosting it until 95c & not boosting over 95c!

                      I also have the temp showing at all times as not really worried about other screens! Only takes 10 secs each time b4 u drive off.
