Dave, now you know why I say the Hallman works better then the factory boost controller. Still, 5psi seems a bit low since the spring in the wastegate holds boost up to 6-6.5psi by itself. Once you get the Hallman installed, then you will see if the system is holding boost or not.

Ben, keep a look-out at www.xmission.com/~dac/centric.htm . Knowing Dave, I'm sure he'll have pictures and info up next week

Shik: where did you put your gauge? I can't really find a suitable location to even start with. I don't have anything to put it in either, it's just its bare self. Maybe i should have looked for a pod of some kind.

I'll have pics up soon. It's super easy to install

Post Installed vdo Boost gauge

Well i got my 0-30 PSI boost gauge from Extreme Motorsports and hooked it in.

I don't have anywhere good to mount it yet but it's nice to have, even if i have to hold it in my hand for the moment.

At this time i've got it connected to the nipple on the turbo itself because i'm curious how much boost it's putting out.

I was surprised when i got it just over 10 on a full throttle run. Otherwise it almost never goes above 5PSI and is closer to 1 when simply cruising at 60mph. I guess the 2.2 with 8.0:1 compression can do most of the work at that speed.

I need to get a housing for it and figure out where to mount it now.

I have mine sitting slightly off center(right) ontop of the steering column. I just put some small, no-so-noticable pieces of 3M double sided tape on the clolumn as well as the bottom of the guage itself. So far it hasn't even come loose through very cold winters and very hot summers. The vacumn line is routed very simply down the side of the column and then behind the dash. I'll try to find one of my high quality pictures of it

So is yours in some kind of case or something to cover the bare metal, or is it just stuck on there?

Where did you run the line for the hose through? I had to do it through the one below the brake booster but i'd love to have a shorter way, or one that doesn't have it stretched across the engine.

I wish they would have included another 6-8 inches of vacuum hose.

No case, just the bare metal, but I did paint the back half flat black so it didn't look TOO cheasy. Really, the only person that can see it is a passenger looking over at it. You can't notice it just by looking in the window. Another one of my cheap-ass set-ups I guess

I don't remember exactly how the hose was routed but I remember that there is a rubber grommet in the floor/firewall behind the pedals just doing nothing so I cut an "X" in it and put through there, but yes, mine comes out by the brake booster as well(under it). Then I ran the hose over to the left side of the engine and laid in inbetween the spark plug wires since there is a space inbetween them for another plug wire. Then just right up to the throttle body. Hardly noticeable at all
