Bavarian Autosport Boost Gauge?

Digital Boost Gauge and Information Display - With Vent - P3Cars



Did any one see the amazing little air duct digital boost gauge?
OMG it looks great! Any idea how hard it is to install?
Or how it looks?

Here's the link to my DIY post. The vacuum connection is probably easier than making the electrical connection to enable a varying brightness.

There is a rubber grommet that allows access through the firewall into the engine bay somewhere adjacent and above the pedals. I used a length of wire coat hanger to fish the vacuum tube from inside the car through to the engine bay.


Section C in this link shows where the grommet is:

It pulls power from the OBD2 port. If you don't hook up the dimmer line, you will have to manually dim it at night (or vice versa, default it to dim and manually turn it brighter during the day).

I posted the part numbers for the connectors in another P3 thread about how to create your own plug and play harness (which I copied from the v1 plug and play harness). Or if it doesn't bother you just use the supplied t-tap.
