I am installing mine this weekend and I am not sure where the two hoses go. According to the GReddy manual, one goes to the fuel pressure regulator and the other goes to the intake manifold.
Can someone please explain to me where these are? Or better yet have a picture!!! I looked at the MKIV.com 52mm boost guage install in the tech articles, but that one is a manual guage and only has one hose to hook up, not two.

THanks in advance.

Are you sure yours has two vacuum hoses? I just bought a 60mm greddy boost with peak/hold warn, but it has only one connection for one vacuum hose? :confused: :confused: you sure?

Hose

If you look at the diagram again, you will see that the new components you are adding to your car is the sensor, ONE VAC HOSE, and the Tee. You will cut the Vac hose from the FPR to the Intake Manifold and put the tee in there to rejoin the line. You then add the ONE VAC HOSE that goes to the pressure sensor box to the third point of the tee. That is all, so it is basically tapping the FPR vac line to run to the gauge sensor box. In other words, the air coming from the intake manifold, that used to only run to the FPR will also run to the gauge sensor now.

Hope this helps. Didn't mean to yell with the caps, just trying to be clear.


Peace,

Hey i just installed my apexi el series gauge this weekend. What i did was i tapped the tps sensor at point A. Check out the spi boost gauge install and it tells you wut to do and has some pix with it that designates which hose is A. Really simple to do. Good luck.

Thanks for the clarification! :D Yeah, it is basically one vacuum that needs to be tapped into the PFR hose with the 3-way Joint. ;) ;)
Do you also put the included Orifice in the 3-way joint like the greddy manual said to prevent the irratic movement of the meter needle? ? any one? :bigok:

thanks..

Black95TT and everyone else,
THANKS A TON! I got it done and it works great, the description was perfect.

Just another question, if they included an orifis part to control irratic needle movement, why didnt they just build it into the guage? It seems like an unnecessary little option that could have been much easier to just build it. Seems like an easy part to loose. Is it more accurate or perform better without it? Thats why they included it, just to use it if it isnt working properly?

Thanks again!
Jeff

I am not really sure if you need that, but it sounds like most guys are leaving it out. I would, myself.
