go to autometer.com
they have instructions there. gauges are universal. they all hook up to the same thing on every car.

a/f gets tapped into the signal wire on the o2 sensor
boost gets tapped into vaccum line (do you have a turbo?)
egt gets tapped into the header.

im in the 2.3L sedan...no turbo.

i want one but i think dealer turbo installs would cost me like a million buck if they even do it at all (i like my warranty!)

then you dont need a boost gauge.

also, taking parts to the dealership to install is a waste of money. do it yourself. it's not hard.

i know its not hard, im saying i want a turbo.
but it would void some parts of the warranty if the turbo is to blame for the problem.

as long as you run the 7-8lbs they come preset to, you'll be just fine.

A dealer wont install a turbo at all, for any cost. They wont install any aftermarket parts at all. Even if you found a tech that would do it under the table, your warranty (powertrain at least) would still be void.

the 415 is saying if you run 7-8psi on the aftermarket turbo, your car will be fine. It shouldnt hurt your transmission or engine i dont think, cause its low. But will still give you good power.
