Not a problem mate. I don't mind wiring. I find that easier than some of the more complicated things. So give me a call when your free. Also, I noted on another thread about stereo/dvd. I can probably help with that too.

Can the pipe below the MAP sensor just be unplugged and then fit T piece between MAP sensor and pipe?

Not sure, I don't think so, but don't quote me. I just cut mine and put a T piece in that way.

My pipe was bloody stiff though, had to use a good combination of screwdriver, pliars and lighter to get it to go onto the T piece. Its on now though

Nice one dude, it was a big help

I wouldn't have thought so, as all the air would just escape out the hole!

Hmm, best to wait for someone who knows their stuff a bit better than me I think lol

Id tap into either the hose going to the turbo wastegate actuator or the boost hose that goes into the side of the ufo capsule on the top of the pump.

The only problem with the second idea is the hose is pretty stiff so getting the t peice in might be tricky.

fitted my boost gauge...it works, with peak boost at 14psi (standard). I did it by putting it in the MAP sensor..however i now have the EML light on but before it came on, when i was driving home (rather enthusistically) the car gelt like it "hit a brick wall" and then i saw this post:

""Car hits a brick wall when accelerating hard, especially in 3rd/4th/5th - boost cut activated. Either faulty MAP sensor reporting boost too high (most likely if if untuned), or boost set too high (more likely if tuned) = lower boost by adjusting turbo wastegate actuator. ""

Quoted from thew common faults section. mine is a 51 plate ZR and i followed the guide to a T but dunno why this has happened!!

Could you try plumbing the gauge into the wastegate pipe instead and see if that helps?

It seems that the MAP sensor is seeing high pressure than before due to plumbing the gauge into the pipe to it.

sorry to drag up an old thread but i just want to be sure im doing this right before i start hacking into pipes.

it looks like daves map sensor is in a different locale to the one on my 220sdi. can anyone confirm from the pics below if the pipe with the ripped sticker on is the pipe to cut into and place the t-piece into. many thanks, si.

No, that's your vacuum supply

The pipe with the green writing on the right hand side is the one you want

I think that's the most convenient location on the 200's/25's/zr's...that's where I went through for my 200SD, someone might know of a more convenient place though!

I too am glad you didn't cut your brakes vacuum supply, might have made an interesting trip
