Did a quick search using Google and didn't find my answer so...<p>Simple question: Can someone tell me where the best place to route the vacuum hose through the firewall is?<p>My gauge & pod are ready to go and the "T" is already installed in the engine bay so I'm hoping the routing of the actual line through the firewall is relatively simple.<p>TIA,<p>Derek

Re: Vacuum hose routing for boost gauge install? (bb vign)

Exactly this worked for me:<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Johann</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Slightly left above the clutch pedal is a passthrough. It is burried in the isolation material so you need to search for it. There is a rubber cap in it which you need to cut through to get wires through it.<br>Cables will enter the engine bay behind the driver side shock tower underneath the ABS and brake booster crap so it can be a bit difficult to reach.<br> </TD></TR></TABLE><br>

there should be a sticker under the hood somewhere with the routing and you would just have to splice into one of those vacume lines and send that to your gauge.

Re: (bb vign)

how/where would you route the hose if you wanted to do it on the steering column like that guy did with the CF pod and blue Dakota Digita gauge ?<p>Same place as Jim mentioned ?
