May be covered in here, but has anyone spliced into the cluster dimmer wire so their boost gauge lights up the same as the rest of the gauges? I feel like it shouldn't be hard, I just need to know what wire to splice into.

I've read some control dim by varying resistance to ground, and some by varying voltage on positive side.

If anyone could help me out that would be greatly appreciated!

I spliced mine into the lights in the door panel since I put my gauge in the vent that's right next to them. It lights up and dims with the LEDs that are on when the headlights are on.

Would you say the level of illumination is close to that of the dash? Does it dim with the dash when you spin the dimmer knob thing?

It dims with it, and it's not noticeably brighter or dimmer than the rest of the lights.

depending where you are locating the gauge the ash tray light may be a good option to tap into.

Good call! I forgot all those things dim too.

Why do you need boost gauge if you are installing tablet and running torque? Kind of redundant?

I've had it laying around for a while, and I think it looks kind of cool. And I'm kind of curious to see what torque reads vs what the gauge reads.

I'd take ACTUAL boost over "calculated" any day....

Kinda my thought. How do scan gauges and stuff even calculate boost?

It's all based off of the MAP sensor....a few other sensors are in the equation, but the MAP is the only one that reads BARO.
