    the tubing will need to go in the pipe that goes from your turbo to the intercooler or the inlet manifold if your engine doesnt have an intercooler

    you would need to drill and tap a small fitting "into" the pipe

    it will depend on the size of the pipe from the guage to the intercooler pipe
    first off though i would try my local motorfactors

    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.
