I used the forge tube to the filter.
this guide worked like a dream ive gone for the velcro on the dash but i wud be interested in the pod kit for the air vent at a later stage me thinks
Just a quick question and need urgent help. Wiring a boost gauge into a k1. We connected the positive to the fuse and we have earthed the other cable but it's now constantly on and wont turn off. Can anyone help?
You need to find a switched live that is only active with the ignition on.
I think one of my pics shows one.
campbell how bright is that gauge at night? does it dim with the lights or anything?
It doesn't dim when the headlights are on but I never find in too bright or distracting at night.
You can have them dim when the head lights are on, quite easy to do. Will post some pics later with mine dimmed and un dimmed!!
I like a boost pod in the air vent but big enough to fill it as this gauge doesn't look big enough
awesome guide dude.
how much different would these instructions be to fit on a mk1 leon?
I have seen nomad do a pillar pod for the mk2 for a single 52mm gauge. Anyone seen a replacement A pillar like the nomad mk1 kits??
Where did u get the boost gauge kit frm cant find it any where
I think you can still get the original by following link in first post.
will be installing mine on the weekeend
Has anyone fitted one in the circle air vent or does anyone do a holder?
I've got all the pieces for a driver's side vent install.
Will do once my axle stands and trolley jack arrive.
I will be wiring it into the back of the light controls instead of the fuse box. It's less dodgy and I can get dimming etc done as well.

Thanks for the guide!
Hi guys can you please help me get my head round something. The tap kit that clips onto the pcv valve pipe from the intake manifold is where the pressure is read from ?? . Does that mean that pressure is being fed into the engine full boost pressure basicly ??
Not sure what you mean but the tap is nothing more than that. Then you attach a vacuum hose from the tap to the boost gauge or boost sensor, depending on the setup.
The intake manifold . Where the pcv pipe clips onto . You fit that kit which has the taps on it to take the vacuum reading. Is this also where the boost reading comes from ? If so that means full boost pressure circulates the pcv system
Hehe. Oh dear.
Yes it is where both vacuum and boost readings come from
And it does indeed circulate. Hence the pcv valve needs replacing after a while. It starts to leak
Edit: sorry the above isn't clear. The air circulates but what I mean is if there's boost pressure, a valve shuts and the air goes to the turbo.
