Must have nothing else to do? :lol:

My set of guages on the shelf for the last four years or so.

I would suggest the best spot for boost is simply tee off the MAP sensor line (just be aware of the usual blockages that occur at the manifold).

I was planning a new tap at the top of the manifold, just after the "throttle" flap.

I was planning to put a T-piece at the Oil pressure switch. This is obviously where the engineers decided was the best spot.

I don't like the idea of comprising the filter mounting.

For the illumination, either tap near the fuse panel or tap into the 12V socket light wire.
Don't let the b'strds get you down!!

The Paj is now 7 years old. The extra gauges are still in the cupboard. :roll: :lol:

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?
