View Full Version : T fitting to run boost gauge and powercard

Hey all,

Wanted to add the boost gauge now to my ep, however the line provided with the gauge isn't long enough to make it out to the JRSC. The line for the powercard is readily available, I'm curious if it's ok to find a watts T fitting at a local hardware store and splice into the existing line, or will that throw off the powercard?

I dont see why this would be an issue.

I did not think it would have been either but I learned, and once I gave it more thought it made perfect sense, was that tapping into the powercard boost line can throw off the unit as it will take more time for the hose to fill with air and can create a delay to the powercard. Airing on the side of caution I opted to not be lazy and ran a second line to the second nipple on the JRSC.

Yes, I said nipple ;)

it will since the line running to the power card lets it know to keep the injectors open, if you run the boost line to the power card it can cause you to run lean
i found out later once i was installing my boost gauge that i had the wrong lines but hope its all working for you!
