I'm thinking a 3.4 is too small for your mods. Still running stock unported exh manifolds, stock PCM, and 195 t-stat? That front manifold really sucks. Not only is it a very small diameter, but the openings are partly blocked by casting flash. 3.6 or 3.5 would be the safe way to go.

i've got mine tapped into the fitting under the nose cone of the supercharger, is that not right? i'm showing appx 15psi @ WOT with a 3.6. but also my diognostic scanner show some code on my boost solonoid. could that effect anything? the car runs great.

15 psi? really? with only a 3.6 pulley and your intake? damn

after reading that write up i'm gonna go with a 3.5" modular system, and a 180 t-stat

I tapped mine to the first hose here, but ours doesn't have the 3 hoses like this, just two, so I tapped into the top line on this part, is that fine?

15 PSI isn't possible with a 3.6" unless you've got something clogging your exhaust pipe. I max at 14 PSI with a 3.2", and that's when it's really cool outside.

Have you verified this with a MAP reading from a scanner?

Ryan, where'd that fuel rail come from? Is that a Gen V blower... is that your engine?

no no, that's a 3800 in a bonneville SSE I believe, from a boost gauge write up..

I gotta buy batteries for my camera, but i'll take pictures of where I tapped it, and my A-pod gauge when I do

the 96 series II rivs have the vac lines routed like the bonnevilles. i dont have a boost gauge but with my scanner i see a max psi of about 11 with my 3.4" on a cold day.
your gauge isnt reading right if it shows 15psi on a M90 with 3.6".
our efficiency max is like 17psi with IC, P&P and 2.8" :lol:

most people tap into the vac line under the snout/alt b/c there is a T there and it is hidden behind everything.

PostSubject: Aeroforce gauge in vent   Write-Up: Installing Boost Gauge - Page 3 EmptyWed Jul 11, 2007 6:30 pm

Is there anything special I need to do to put the gauge in the vent on the drivers door? Any write up?

Is it as simple as popping out the vent and putting in the gauge or do I have to block the vent path or something?

Got my aeroforce today would like to put it in wink.

I blocked the vent path to that side when I did mine. It's not too tough, I just used Duct tape. You will have to dissasemble it and make the opening slightly larger to fit the gauge inside.

Installed the aeroforce gauge I bought into the vent on the drivers side. I like having it there instead of a pillar gauge. wink

I put the wires through the rubber piece that the other crap goes through. Drilled a hole in the vent piece and ran the wires up through there. I had to drill the vent piece a little so the gauge would fit but it looks great. Can't tell anything was even put there no wires exposed.

Looks great! Do you get enough cold air through the one bottom vent?

Yeah. It comes out of the bottom vent more. I think if tossed another gauge in the bottom the car would still cool down enough. I've closed the bottom to test it and it cools down pretty good without either of them.
