4) The only wires coming out of the gauge appear to be a ground, constant, switched, and dimmer wire. Where is the gauge getting the actual boost signal from? Is there a plug or something on the back of the gauge like in the BF series?
5) Where did you get your Defi Red Racer gauges from? (And would you recommend getting mine from the same place?)
6) Is there any place in particular you found to be an easy, out of the way location to mount the ground wire to?
- Connects to the gauge.
- Included with the gauge.
- There are two plugs going into the gauge. The one with the wires you mentioned, and the other plug with the signal from the pressure sensor.
- I got mine from RallySportDirect. Their prices aren't always the lowest, but their service is MUCH better than the "PM for a price, I'll beat anything, and then drop ship it to you" online retailers.
- I used a bolt near the fuse box.
