Boost gauge vacuum hose
After looking a bit, I keep reading about people using 1/4" vacuum hose to install a boost gauge. Is it not recommended to use the nylon hose that comes with the kit? Will I get better readings from the 1/4"? Plus I was planning on running mine through the engine compartment to the plug under the driver's side dash. Is this not wise?
I definitely scrapped the nylon piece of crap that came with mine along with the crush fittings. Instead I used 1/8" black vacuum hose. I made a brass tee with barb fittings to tap into the line and put an 1/8" barb on the back of the boost gauge. It is instantly responsive and much better than the supplied line.
