Iv'e just received an Autometer boost gauge today and I'm now wanting to know how all you peeps have fitted yours eg

Which line have you plumbed into in the engine bay to pick up the boost/vacuum (using what fittings/pipes etc please)?

How have you run the pipe through the bulk head and where?

How is the electrical feed wired up for the illumination of the bulb?

Any pictures, comments veiws or ideas much appreciated please.

P.S. what pods you lot using and from where?

Cupra R, I'm in the middle of writting a fitting guide for a boost gauge (An Autometer as well!!!) in an Iibza Cupra for the site. The only thing that is lacking at the moment is pictures (bloody digital cameras!) if you give me your email address I will send you the guide in word format (its a bit to long to post). I have put one picture in the guide from another site that shows you where to tap into in the engine bay for the boost/vacuum which is probably the most useful one.

PS Redman, when you say you are after similar info do you mean the fitting guide? If you did then drop me a mail at [email protected]
hmmm, not sure what the match will be like, Does it light up red? I was looking for something with a chrome surround instead of black which i notice they do as their lite version! any1 tried these ones?

Also does any1 know how to fit the electronic oil pressure and temp gauges???? i.e. Whats needed etc?????

I know I had a pocket full of cash and found nothing... There's never anything to buy at trax, should have known better... Even the Spax rep told me they don't do a Leon fitment... But they do, so he lost on a sale...

Wanted a boost gauge and only saw one that looked anything like... and it was ****in expensive..

Shock, it does glow up red but the light comes around the rim on the edge of the dial and not fully back lit like the dash dials which is a shame. If you want I could take a pick of mine at night for you to see!

It most certainly is!

I got it from demon tweeks for about £20, looks ok but its started to crack around the edges now so im going to re-do it.

They are mega( and i mean mega) annoying to fit! But look great and look tidyer than a pod just plonked on the dash.

Ill get you a pic of where you wire it in from so it dims with the rest of the lights.;)
