I am curious to see how other people are installing their boost pressure gauge. Is it ok to T it to a vacuum line or do I need to tap a hole into the intake manifold?

I looked at the vacuum diagram in my engine bay and it seems like there is a vacuum line called a "fuel feed" line after the supercharger. Can I used this for the sensor, or is this a fuel line?

Also, I want to install an oil pressure gauge. What sandwich adapter are people using?

Someone smarter than me will answer you, but there shouldn't be any vacuum lines between the SC and the engine, they'd blow off with boost. You'd want your gauge nearest the engine head, so you know what boost is going into the engine and taking into account psi drops in the IC.

Once again ZTEC, you've been helpful and I appreciate you taking the time to put up a photo. Is there another line I can tap it from that you are aware of?

Judging from the lack of response from others, I guess most people have professionals installing them.
