    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! :sm4:

    thanks for this bud, but i already saw this and it doesnt assist with the install.

    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. ;)

    No prob bud, i have a basic setup with just the boost gauge so no controller.
    Has the electric sender that i placed under the rain tray.
    Its fitted on a an extra oem vent.
