it only takes 15-20 minutes to install it. You need a power wire, ground wire, to tap into a existing vacuum line, and a wire that goes to your headlights so if the gauge is equipped with a light it turns on with the other lights. A car shop usually charges about $25-$30 for the install.

DO NOT get a a/f gauge with the little light that bounces around. If you want to get a a/f gauge, spend the money and get a wideband

well, unless the autometer a/f gauge is wideband then its pretty much just flashy lights in your cabin there to look cool. Non-wideband a/f gauges are not accurate at all.

As for the boost gauge, just tap it in to the vac line coming off your bpv on the intercooler.
run it through the firewall and attach to wherever you mounted the gauge. Enjoy monitoring your boost.
