    Hey Guys,

    Firstly I am sorry if this has been mentioned before and I have missed it! Have done a search on here and looked at many posts but couldn't get a specific answer.

    I would just like to ask for your advice on where I need to cut in to install a T-Fitting for a boost gauge. Having looked at a few pictures on here I think I have found where.

    Attached are some pictures of my engine with the cover removed and am I correct in thinking it is the pipe where the screwdriver is pointing too?

    Thanks guys.

    Yes the fuel pressure regulator is more accurate, but if the hose you fit to it ends up splitting you will have more problems as the ecu won't fuel correctly.

    Safest place to tee of is the dv.
