Awesome.

I was going to tap the tapped blower coolant pump fuse.

The inside way will work better. Sweet.

You guys rock.

Is f17, or f18 powered during engine crank? I just bought an Autometer boost gauge that needs power when the engine is cranking so it can reference current atmospheric pressure.

Also guys, is there a best size vacuum hose to use for this?

I'd hate to cause any disruption of my BAP.

Not exactly sure why you would need that since Boost Guage is mechanical.

F17 and F18 are just for guage lights.Most all circiuts are off momentarily during actual engine starter operation.

From the Auto Meter instruction manual. Its a digital gauge.

Connect the red power wire to a switched +12 volt source that maintains power during engine cranking. Most vehicles break the electrical connection to accessories while
the engine is being started. If the boost gauge is connected to one of these circuits, the auto zero function will not work properly and inaccurate readings will result.
To determine whether a switched source maintains power during starting, look for electrical accessories in the vehicle that remain on while the engine is being started.
Connect the red power wire to the same circuit that powers one of these accessories.

Just use the same size that is on there now. Not sure of exact size but the port on the back of the blower will determine that. Just make sure ot is a snug fit and zip tie it on the blower side the T Fitting will not need zip tied because it is barbed.

Ok cool. I believe it's a quarter inch ID. Could maybe stand to be a tad smaller but it won't come loose or leak so I guess it's fine.

Looks fine to me...I would fasten your reference switch to something though so it doesn't bounce around against the inner fender metal if that is where it is going to stay..

Be sure and protect your vacuum line from sharp edges as well...I like to wrap it in split loom

Cool.

Ya, I took the plug out of the hole that protected the hood release. I'll put some split loom on all three items going through. I planned on zip tying the reference switch to the battery cable but I pulled it up tight and figured I might just insulate it with something padded. Tucked back that far it will never be seen but I'm not sure if I want to clean it up better and put the switch in the car.

Hard to get to the hose barb coming out of the manifold to zip tie it. I'll find a way though.

BTW, what does that reference switch do exactly? I'm guessing simply tell the BAP that it's under boost and to turn on?

Yep,thats exactly what it does.It senses a drop in vacuum to 0 and sends a signal to engage the BAP.

Thats why it is so critical to make sure that line does not malfunction or you could go lean...

I have no way here to test it. I can't boost the engine unless I run it. Can't get the fuel pressure driving it.

Is fuel pressure available on an SCT datalog?

For whatever reason, I haven't found a good pid using SCT for reporting fuel pressure. I am confident there is a generic fuel pressure pid in the ECU because I use an alternative logger that captures it and reports in psi. Just haven't been successful in finding it using SCT
Maybe a call into SCT would help.

try living in South Dakota... especially after coming from the middle of TX i'm pretty sure i'd have to go to Denver to even find a dyno. i know the closest road course is about 7-8hrs away

Ya, but I'll bet you got some good roads to open it up on.

hmm... so far i've seen


and


with the occasional




and


and let's not forget what we get when it warms up...


when the roads do clear up, they're that crappy grooved surface (to help in bad weather) instead of the nice good grippy roads y'all got down south


but at least my boost gauge works just fine
why didn't you just use the screw fitting on the manifold that should be right beside the nipple? that's where i hooked mine up to
