    DEFI Racer Boost Gauge install question

    Hey guys, I have been searching with no luck...
    Where should I be tapping into for power for the DEFI Racer boost gauge?

    To run the cables from the engine bay to the dash, do you go through the rain tray?

    Thanks!

    for those that are interested, i tapped power form the adaptive light fuse.

    Works like a charm.

    I ran cables through the grommet for the bonnet catch into the car.
