OMGHi2U Can you run two boost gauges?

This may sound idiotic, but hear me out.....

I just got in an Omori boost gauge to replace my craptastic OEM Lamco gauge that reads in foot lamberts or whatever. I want to take my Lamco gauge and mod it. I basically want to turn it into this:

I will disassemble it, mod the faceplate, and turn it into a bling gauge. The bling gauge will measure bling of course. Bling will correspond to the turbo boost. I obviously and honestly don't care if it's accurate, I just want a gauge that measures bling totally for fun.

My serious question is this:

Will placing a T fitting into the "boost hose" (I apologize in advance for my gauge terminology ignorance) in the back of the new Omori gauge allow both gauges to function properly or will this split the boost reading between the two gauges?

My plan is to mod the Lamco, "T" into the Omori "boost hose", and vampire tap into the Omori wires. I hope this will allow me to have two fully functioning gauges. One real Omori, and one modified Lamco bling gauge.

Any help or advice on this obviously idiotic project is encouraged. I have thick skin, so bash away if you need to, but realize that I am only doing this to be a jacktard to my local Scooby buddies!

Bling Gauge

Anyway, splitting one vacuum line will still allow 2 or more gauges to read the same pressure.
