Where are you SVT folk going for your boost gauge and BOV?

I've tried multiple spots but can not find one that reads good both boost and vacuum.

A picture would be awesome, since the manifold is so complex.

Thanks,
Patrick

......not so...,boost controller still controls psi to eng....location has options for readings. TB will indicate psi to intake chamber, and turbo or SC outlet will indicate psi @ compressor..

My boost gauge is hooked up to the back on the intake mani. If you look @ the manifold you will see a small black plastic line that runs along the top of it. In the middle of that line it has a T in it. Tap into that for you boost gauge. My blow-off valve i have tapped into a black box on the firewall located on the passenger side.

Sorry no pics, but they are easy to find.

Hmm, same place I have mine.

At idle it will read 2psi, at the high idle (like the SVTs have stock) it will read 10 vacuum, and if I rev the boost gauge goes to like 6, even though I know I don't have 6psi at 3000.

Bad boost gauge?

Yup...I think the gauge is bad.
