Had my Flowmaster Catback installed yesterday, the drone is pretty bad, it needs some adjustment because it is rattling against the bezels in the GFX diffusor!

Doing a little mock up before i start installing the gauges, i had a bung Tig welded into my exhaust so i could put the Bosch Sensor for the wideband Air/Fuel gauge. Also will be installing the Boost Gauge, it appears Magnuson has already left a place in the passengers rear to connect to easily if you have small hands?

Tell me about it. Trying to get the intercooler hoses on and clamped back there was a bit challenging

Okay wires are east to route, (thanks Darth Emma for your help) just above master brake reservoir there is a small black plug in the firewall you can remove. Inside above the dead pedal move the carpet and insulation and you will see your Positive Battery cable and the hole is just right above that. All wires can be fed easily through there and routed right up into the pillar for your gauges.

Eureka! You found the hole in the firewall!

By the way, I'd suggest you contact MaureenM@RodgersChevrolet (she is their parts manager).
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/member.php?u=22665

She will be able to get you those posts for the engine cover. Send her that pic you posted.

She's da bomb!

Well you must be related to her because your Da'Bomb also Terri! Thanks for all your help and by the way i got 4 of them on order. I have a whole mess to get the passengers side engine cover to fit because we plumbed the Maggie with a lot of hoses going over the passengers valve cover.

If you contact Roto-fab, they will tell you how to remount the maggie reservoir so those covers will work. It has to be moved to the driver's side. You can kind of see where it is in these pictures.

It looks like it is mounted to the middle section of the strut tower?

I think they made a little bracket to mount it right in front of the master cylinder.

I wish I had a better picture of it.

You said the hose connects to the Maggie on the back?

I think at idle there is a lot of vacuum so the gauge reads that as negative 20 I guess? Do you know what boost you are running currently?

I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea to put the reservoir below the intercooler...

It is below the ABS reservoir on the frame rail, that's where Magnuson says to put it.

I think Terri is talking about the resevour and you are thinking of the pump. Pump is On the frame, res is up on the passenger heads. Hers was moved to the drivers side and looks like maybe on the strut tower?
