Re: Boost gauge?

Intake elbow on the top of your engine, it has a black hard platic tube running into it.

Re: Boost gauge?

Go to diesel manor they have a tech file that has pictures. Mark the intake elbow with a sharpie on the truck in a place that will not interfere with anything. Pull the 4 bolts and be easy they will break if your rough with them. Pull the intake off. Drill the intake it is aluminum so it is fairly easy to drill be easy with the tap it is aluminum and stripping threads is easy. Install the fitting into the intake elbow use teflon tape to make a tight seal. Remember not to over torque it. Then install the elbow after you clean it up. Use a back up when hooking up the boost line.
