    Default Connecting Boost Gauge

    Curious what the masses have used to connect their dash mounted boost gauge to the motor? -4 SS seems overkill, plastic seems underkill.

    Your thoughts would be much appreciated.....john

    You can use black hose, or I have seen some guys use stainless from the engine, and couple it to black hose under the gunnel where it doesn't show. You can also probably use -3 instead of -4.

    I used a roll of small dia copper tubing. Looks good enough for $15

    Plastic water line for me. I just put black wire loom over it, hides it well.
