boost gauge wiring - how did you do yours?

Hi

Waiting new boost gauge and pod and fitting kit coming. Any tips on whats around the dash to wire it to? Have an 03 wrx - does anyone know if there is a spare blocked outlet on the manifold I can use like the classic one has for the air pipe? Any advice would be really appreciated

Thanks in advance

I fitted mine, the best way i could find was take the ignition live from the radio plug and find a good earth there are some under drivers side well there are loads iam shore u can find one. then run the boost hose out through the passenger side footwell u will see a rubber which other wires come through to engine bay just cut little hole and push through then connect to the free outlet of the manifold there is a spare prob has a rubber stop pushed on to it hope that helps

Fitted the T piece off the vacuum pipe from intake manifold, mine was only a 2wire job, fitted one wire to the light wire for the I/C water spray switch so when I turned lights on that switch lights up, so have light in the gauge, put the ground wire through firewall on passenger side their a rubber piece also put vacuum pipe through here aswell, then ran the ground wire to the top passenger side by strut bar in engine bay their are 2 ground points their in my car

The intake manifold on an 03 doesn't have the blank. I tee'd into the rubber pipe in the front of the manifold. Would send you a pic but it 6 inches snow here at the min
