Any of you guys have one? if so where did you pickup the feed? I'm guessing the only one that might work is the accessory vacuum port at the back?

Well I want a gauge pod that would hold a boost gauge and look like the one on the monaro but alas several vendors are supposedly making something but have dropped off the planet.

I talked to him last week and he said he was basically ready, don't quote me on that since my memory is about as reliable as winning the lottery lately ;)

Why would you need a boost gauge with a magnuson? The pressure ratio is fixed.

Can't you just calculate the new pressure ratio from a different pulley size?

So you can see the little needle move and say - KEWL its working ;)

Dyno I went to hooked up the boost gage to make sure it was putting out 7 pounds, and kicking in at the right times.

YUP sure was.

He first T-ed it using a line up front but that was giving really weird reading, then moved to the port in the back drivers side and was accurate then.

Made me want one right then and there :D
