Default Quick Omori boost gauge install question

This seems a bit harder than i thought it was going to be, more wiring came in the package than i anticipated



instructions:
http://www.j-spectuning.com/installs...lumn_Podv2.pdf

The thing that confuses me the most is, i was almost 100% the majority of boost gauges are tapped off the line at the top of the BPV? The instructions mention tapping a line that goes to the check valve? near the intake manifold/FPR

Also it makes no mention of the black pouch in the pic (which contains a circuit board and some wires coming out of it), also the clear plastic thing with the sponge inside?

My head hurts

I believe the black pouch is a dimmer accessory, meaning the boost in stock trim doesn't dim with the rest of the car's interior lights. That is meant to fix that, but I don't know how to hook it up. I have a stack of Omori gauges sitting on my desk and no instructions to install them either :/

I have one on my car, did not use the dimmer box. Actually don't think I got one with mine. But I tapped off the fuel pressure regulator line, seems to be more accurate, don't get spikey numbers. I recommend using zip ties to make sure the lines don't pop off tho.

Put the sender in the engine bay.

If you're going to run a hose under the dash, you should have just bought a mechanical boost gauge.

I don't understand this... on page 9

http://www.j-spectuning.com/installs...lumn_Podv2.pdf

There are 4 wires
red: connect to ignition wire
green: connect to ignition wire
white:connect to switch lighting or small accessory wire
black: ground

wheretf are these wires they speak of?

then it goes on to say
red: yellow/green
green: yellow/green
white: pink/blue wire (if gauge comes on with headlights
black: black


Are they trying to say that there's 2 different ways to wire this thing?

I have a printed copy of the install. Mine says the following:
RED: Ignition switch
Green: battery +
White: 12V dash lighting
black: vehicule ground

So for me, it will be pretty strait forward. White and black will go behind the radio. There is a connector behind the radio for the oem boost gauge option. This connector is tied with the car's dash dimmer.

For the Red and green, I will play with my multimeter.

i got it wired up. It came with a resistor/dimmer thing (see it sitting ont he dash int he pic)

I didn't install it, can i just solder it where everything is connected? or willt hat affect the clock? i guess it has to be soldered along the power line going to the gauge?

I didn't hook up the filter thingy. Has anyone had a problem with not using it? I guess oil junk will eventually work its way into the sender.
