Today I installed the Defi Red Racer boost gauge. Right now it is in a temporary mounting location until I get my gauge pod in. The install went better than I expected. I went through the fender with the wiring and it was actually really easy (after I took off the wheel and opened up the fender liner). Much easier than getting through the firewall on other cars I've worked on. Here is a link to the photo's explaining where I went through:

Once I got it all hooked up everything works great. Sits right at 0 with the car off, and then goes to about 20.5 inHg at idle. Hitting peak boost at just under 20psi. Same that I have seen while logging. The color of the gauge matches perfectly.

The gauge does the sweep when the key gets to the ACC position, but then when I start the car it turns back off for a second and does another sweep. I think I must be tapped into the wrong fuse. Any suggestions?
