Default pics of defi electronic boost gauge install?

Does anyone have pics of an installed Defi Link boost gauge? I'm looking for ideas on how to run the wiring, and especially where to mount the sensor (the small black box that sits in between the T-joint and the control unit).

Thanks

i don't have a pic just yet, but i hooked mine up yesterday, and the instructions say to keep it away from excess heat... yet make the hose line as short as possible... so i put it next to the intake. no idea if that's a good location (any other ideas?) gonna call some shops today to see exactly where they locate them. i'll try to get pictures soon.

Depending on where you T-off the line, the supplied hose will reach back to the firewall.

It's going to be tough to keep it away from heat anywhere in that area, so I just (a few days ago) temporarily mounted it next to the fuel filter (where it will get good circulation from the scoop).

where did you t-off the line? did you use the three-way they gave you or did you have to get a new one? i was looking at putting it between the fuel regulator and the intake, but the hoses are much bigger than the three-way??

I used the supplied 3-way (sorry, no pics), on a HKS BOV. I T'd in approximately 3" from the bov. 10 second install.

The hoses in this particular car were a tight fit onto the T, I ziptied them to ensure they wouldn't blow off.

i thought it had to come off a vacuum line from the intake, no? i'm no expert, i was just follwing directions. but if that works and has accurate readings... i'm in

I temporarily stuck it on the exposed end of the bolt that is used to tighten down the fuel filter. Put a nut on the end of the bolt to hold it on. I'll screw it to the firewall when I reroute the sending unit wires this week.

I peaked on 1.1 bar, which is accurate - I think?

I t'd the sensor off of the factory T on the stock BOV. Then I mounted the sensor to a bracket on the firewall near the brake fluid reservoir. Make sure to mount the sensor in a near vertical orientation (lines sticking straight down).
