Default maddad boost gauge

I've been installing the boost gauge and have run into a snag, on the bpv line where it says to cut and then put the T adapter in, the line on my 06 sti is too big for the T adapter, where can I get another T adapter or where else should I tap to fix this?

You should be able to find a T adapter in all shapes and sizes at a local auto parts store such as Pep Boys and Autozone down there.

If you're not familiar with Salisbury, the Rt. 13 (business) Pep Boys by the mall should have what you need. And if you don't have another car or can't get someone to drive you, tape it up I guess...it just may run like **** for a little bit, but everywhere in Salisbury is only like 5 miles end-to-end or so.

I had the same problem on mine. The BPV line seems to taper at the end; when I cut it, the provided T-connector was too small to fit mid tube. I did what FFknuckles said and picked up a set different sized T-connectors and adapters to make it work.

Don't forget to plug in the callibration button like the directions say. I didn't do it right the first time and was reading high until i calibrated the gauge correctly.

Enjoy the gauges, they look better than Defis and are much less expensive!
