My 2 1/16" auto meter sport comp boost gauage and a pillar single pod come in tomoroww. A few quick questions ...

1) Routing hose from gauge through firewall any good spots?

2) Does guage come with t fittings and clamps? will I need to buy any from an auto parts store? tubing?

3) will i need something to seal connections?

thanks ...

The autometer gage will come complete with about everything that you will need. You will have to drill holes into your pillar trim. Since I had the front sheet metal off the car when I installed my boost gage I drilled a small hole in the drivers side firewall in the fenderwell and tapped into an emissions vac line. Real easy. You will need to find power for the lights at the fuse box...most difficult part!

shouldn't have to do anything...

There should be a rubber grommet that you poke a hole through (driver's side above brake pedal)....

The only thing you might have to do is to tap into your powerdyne...but for some reason I believe it comes predrilled for a boost gauge connection (I have a Kenne Bell and it had such a place).

the two wires that come out of the back of most mechanical autometer gauges are for the light source and a ground wire. one white and one black.
