Looks great, almost as if MGR knew to make the vents the right size for a gauge!!!

Cheers

I've had cheap crap gauges from ebay, total waste of money in my opinion.

If anyone isn't sure what to use to mount the gauge:
Not sure if this will help but I thought I'd try using my pillar gauge holder from my golf, with a bit of trimming it wasn't too bad a fit. It costs about 32 from eBay if I remember rightly.

On my zs td i fed my boost hose through the heater cable grommit next to the clutch pedal. I now have a 45 td and i dont have this grommit. I think thats due to the 45 having air con.

After looking around on the internet a lot of people seem to get lost when fitting boost gauges. Like the isue i had, they cant find a way through the bulkhead due to no heater grommit so here's my 2p's worth-

Unscrew the 2 bolts holding the expansion tank in place. Move this to one side and put a hole through the large black rubber grommit.
Put a slim solid object through the boost hose as can be seen below.
I used a phillips drill bit-



Then feed the drill bit through the grommit and it will pop out just behind and above the fuse box like so-



Job done :-) Bolt the expansion tank in and fit the gauge.
This is how mine now looks-





Cheers, Dave
