Is there an "How-to" install ŕ boost gauge in the 2013 SHO or the like?

Aside from crash's pod install HowTo and bpd's writeup on his A pillar pod install, not really.  I assume you are thinking of installing sensors in the engine compartment and monitoring their data?  Or are you looking to get info from the OBD port to the gauge?  The Aeroforce Interceptor gives you some options, you can look at brucelinc's pics/install info in his posts.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

I already use torque pro with a obd2 doogle but I bought a mechanical boost gauge to monitor full time. My main concern is where to install the T that comes with the gauge. I can deal with the 12v alimentation.

Did finally find a discussion on this forum (yay!!!) that should work for our app:
http://www.ecoboostperformanceforum.com/index.php?topic=2177.0

bpd mentions tapping into the brake booster line.

A couple of pics from crash:



Can't believe I haven't found that thread! Tapatalk isn't good for searching...

So I have two options, picture above from Crash or the solenoid.

Thanks a lot Shodded!

Here is a photo I send out to our customers that are adding a 3 bar map sensor.  I added red arrows to show also the line we typically T into for our Alky methanol injection systems and / or a boost gauge.

Amazing! Just what I needed. The picture is clear, I can't miss it now.

Think that's the line that Ford did not clamp. Tends to pop off. Be a good idea to clamp it while you're there.

Note taken.

I also bought an "add-a-circuit" fuse tap to power the led light of the gauge. Just need to find a fuse that is powered only during nighttime so it will automatically turn on and off.

Yes, ideally I want it to follow the autolamps illumination.
