Its fairly simple. You take a spilter and put it in between the vacume/boost line coming off the wastegate of the turbo. Run that split off line to the control module if electrical guage or directly to the guage if its a mechanical guage. Run a power and a ground wire to the guage and you are good to go.

Oh, and for your oil temp, save yourself some time and headaches and buy the Process West sending block. Its only like $40 and works wonders

As far as the boost gauge do what v8eaterwrx shows tap into the BOV.For the oil temp remove oil galley plug under intercooler on the left of it and replace with subaru part # 11024-AA210 this plug has a threaded hole for the oil temp sending unit.DO NOT TAP INTO THE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR HOSE for the boost gauge.

This is wrong information.

You tap it where it is shown on the pic above. There is a T on the line coming out of the bypass valve.

I will help you install them if you want. Give me a pm.

In that pic that says (Tap right here?) That line you see coming off the T is the line for a boost gauge. If your car previously had a guage then you can just reuse that line.

Remove the plug that the yellow arrow is pointing to with subaru part # 11024-AA210 so you can install your sending unit.

I have a 52mm omori gauge, and the t-fitting that came with it has this brass orifice on one end. This piece is to stabilize the reading on the gauge. However, the hose that's on the BOV is far too large for this t-fitting(4mm). Now I could just get a sturdy brass fitting, but it doesn't come with the orifice...
Will I have to special order this from Omori? How did everyone else install their Omori meter?
