    simply need a t piece with a 5mm pipe comming off it, it can be cut in to the original pipework.

    I've got it going spare, it's an alluminuim one, had to get it custom made by forge motorsport as there is no suitable pipe on the intake system to take a T off, you can have it for £15 delivered, then all u gotta do is attach it to the pipe from the guage, job done.

    U wanna get a guage which goes to at least 20psi (1.5 bar i believe) as on over boost mine hits 18psi.

    Well was sent a fitting kit with a no buzz connector, and have been told that it goes on the inlet, i didnt think a tdi could use a t connector.

    Basicially just cut in to one of the boost pipes after the intercooler but before the manifold with one of these:

    But with a 5mm T instead of 25mm and attached the boost guage to that.
