So I have a Glowshift Mechanical Boost Gauge, and I need to install it/have it installed. I was wondering if anyone has a place they would recommend me going to. I am located in CT but I wouldnt mind driving a bit. I know of a place called XXTuning in Hartford who are supposed to be good. Anyone have anywhere else they know of and would recommend? I would appreciate the feedback! Thanks! :)

It doesnt seem that hard, I just have no experience working on cars. Im sure I could do it, but I dont know if I wanna try. I have no idea where I would run the wires to... Do I get longer wire and run in to the fuse box?

for a 12v you can just get some primary wire from radio shack and tap into the fuse box, any thing that's on with ignition works, make sure you use a fuse obv.

you could.

another option would be to tap the green/yellow wire in the drivers kick panel (just below the hood release). be sure to use an inline fuse with this option though.

there is a ground in the kick panel too, the bolt with the ring terminals, it just attaches to the chassis.

You can pretty much use any metal part that's connected to the chassis as a ground.
Just a FYI
