Re: gauge installing tips

Re: gauge installing tips

Easy breazy, bud. Just keep the drill bit well coated in vasolene, to catch the pieces of manifold. The boost guage should just be a simple T fitting.
What did you get to display them in? An A pillar pod?

Re: gauge installing tips

i got an a pillar pod,will keep the vasolene trick in mind,i was sort of under the impression that you had to pull the manifold to keep the shavings out,but is all new to me

Re: gauge installing tips

take your time. when drilling into the manifold do it in steps, like start off with a smaller bit then whats required for the probe.

Re: gauge installing tips

Shavings wont really matter. It'll just go right out the exhaust.

Would metal shavings moving at high velocity agree with the turbo?
