If you looking to mount just a single gauge, there is a single pod steering column mount avaliable.

I think you can buy a bolt from Geno's Garage that replaces one of the grid heater bolts. Thats what I would do for simplicity. i don't have analog gauges though.

On the 12V, there is a pressure port that is a 1/8 inch pipe tapping located on the side of the head near the injection pump, below the injection lines.

No, you should be fine. The pressure port is just a convient way to access pressurized air.

Didn't know that thanks for the info. You just want to tighten it a 1/4 turn before it breaks then back it off a half a turn.:lol3::lol3::rof:rof:lol3:

Remember its just a thin hollow bolt like the banjo bolts... They break just the same... :thud:

Anyway you can post a pic of where you mounted this on the motor of your 92? I can't seem to follow you where you mounted it.
thanks

jkidd sells boost bolts pretty cheap. it replaces an intake manifold bolt. works well and they are not as weak as some claim they are...then again you shouldn't be using an impact gun on your intake manifold either :doh:

here's a pic showing both of my boost gauge locations.

there's a boost bolt in the intake manifold itself, and another in a tapped port in the cold pipe between the turbo's.



that thin clear tubing that goes up into the hood seal is the boost gauge lines..one on the left and one on the right...
