Re: unhook factory wastegate line??

We do not have a wastegate on the OBS trucks, so what hose are you referring to?

The boost gauge is easily connected by teeing into the MAP sensor hose. This hose runs from the passenger intake plenum up to the MAP sensor located on the passenger firewall. You must Tee into this line, not disconnect it, as it's important to have an accurate MAP sensor reading going to the PCM.

For best results drill and tap the Y-pipe that comes off the turbo.
