    Morning all!

    How difficult is it to fit a boost gauge? I want one! Any ideas where to fit the unit?

    Also does anyone know if this voids the Audi warranty?

    Cheers, /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug.gif

    I got mine fitted by a garage because I didn't know what line to tap into for the boost gauge to run off of. I'll take some photos tonight to give you an idea of what you have to do.

    Easy when you know which one you have to cut! No so easy if you were like me and didn't have a clue!

    I wouldn't reccomend using the FPR hose. It's only slight, but there is a latency induced by tapping into the hose. That is the reason the hose is so short and direct to the FPR.

    The DV hose mate /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Your's being a later car may have some additional vacuum lines you can tap into.

    So many hoses /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif

    Mines out at the moment as I had that warranty work done.........waiting for a while before it goes back in to see how healthy she is.

    Why does Excursion not recommend tapping off this line?

    If you get a leak on the FPR line there is potential for det and engine damage.
