    I would like to fit a digital boost gauge to my REVO'd 2.0 TDI Sport. I have fitted boost gauges to previous cars but occasionally I have cheated and run the silicon hose through the door and wing. I'd like to do this one properly.

    This being my first diesel too, I don't know where I should be connecting the silicon hose and then just getting the hose through the bulkhead etc.

    Thanks all.

    I fitted mine to my S3 a few months back.

    Take a feed for the silicone pipe off of the DV and then run it through the bulkhead on the drivers side. There is a gromet behind the wiper motor that leads into the car up behind the fuse box. I used a coat hanger todrag it through.

    The feed is taken from the intake pipe at the rear of the
    Engine, its large and made of plastic, you cant miss it
