    Boost gauge plumbing pics or an explanation if possible?

    Been lookin for a gromit to run my boost gauge through the bulk head, i understand there is a gromit nr the fuse box but i cant find it and its doin my head in!

    Anyone got any pics? i found a wire runnin through but it seems to go into the black cylinder that the break fluid res is fixed too.

    i know i'm bein dumb and its prob obvious but i could do with a lil help.

    Its there mate, it might be in use though if you have a TC button fitted.

    t-piece from fuel pressure reg and aftermarket d/v

    feed through to cab through rubber bung in bulk head down side of drivers side strut

    the vac hose will come through above accelarator pedal remove this cover to position hose

    centre console is easy to disassemble by opening ash tray and removing the 4 screws . here ive wired the gauge to cigarette lighter so the power is on when key is turned

    custom surround coated in carbon heat shrink film

    job finished

    night time

    it is hard to see the grommit its the size of a 2 pence once you remove the under dash tray you will feel above the acc pedal if your looking in engine bay you will need a torch it is at the rear of the drivers side strut top,if you look at my under bonnet pic you can see a multi plug with a yellow,green and brown wire its directly behing this

    If you don't have the spare gromit like i don't, then you can drill a hole in the passenger side bulk head.
    Here's where i put mine


    I used a 8mm drill bit and my amp cable and boost gauge run through the same hole.
    If you put it in the same place as mine you won't hit anything on the other side.
