Default Help with installing boost gauge

wooo first post since hte catastrophe...

i read the OEM subaru instructions and some threads on scoobymods so i have the basics down, just not sure where to find some things.

1) there are two rubber stoppers behind the intercooler, which one do i use to put the rubber hose through? the one with an impressed groove (smaller) or flat one (larger)? where does it come out in the compartment? i can't see any holes by the gas pedal.

2) where can i tap 'dimmed' power, possible from the gauge cluster? i will take apart the center console to get the one above the stereo if that is the only one available but would rather not do all that work. for that connector, what size spade connectors can i use or should i just strip the wires?

thanks

You can tap the power from the clock,but it depends on where ya want to mount it.

hm brake pedal ok i'll look there. is that the one that comes out behind the intercooler or is it lower? seems like it would be alot lower.

the power above the stereo i'm talking about the spare harness subaru left for the oem gauge (how nice), just don't know what size the connector would be. i'm using an autometer-style gauge bezel, should string it straight across when everythings apart right?

Yes its low.Make sure not to lose that little grommett.Lets in noise.
I did my pod where the clock was and just tapped the clock harness.

If your hose is long enough, you could also pass it through the grommet near the turbo. There's a lot more room there to work with, and all you have to do to get it out the other side is remove the glovebox. Just a thought. It's what I did for my wrx and now sti.

If you look under your hood and face the engine bay, it should be the only grommet in that wide open space behind the turbo/downpipe and just to the left of it.

The instructions may say to use silicone, but I never did on my wrx and I had no problems for the two years it was installed. I just poked a small hole in it and squeezed the hose through.
