But it definitely was necessary, getting to that grommet and pulling the vac line through with the TMIC installed would have been a nightmare.

The wiring was pretty easy since I went the route of using "add-a-circuits" to add the wires into the appropriate fuse slots.

After manually calibrating the gauge for my elevation (5200ft) I took a drive to test it and it reads spot on to my Accessport.

Overall I'm very pleased. I can't believe I've gone this long without a dedicated boost gauge.

Nice job on the install, getting the Tmic back on sometimes can take a bit, but the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Glad it all worked out
