Hi,
I am trying to install a boost gauge by myself on my 16VT but I am not sure which hose to "cut".
Here are some photos to help: https://photos.app.goo.gl/uHUY2EmT2QENxy3B6
Is it the blue one?
Can someone guide me on this?
Thanks
Joaquim

On the 20v the blue hoses are for the fuel vapour system so I wouldn't go cutting those until someone who knows more about the 16v comes along to confirm things.

You shouldn't have to cut any hose at all though, on the 20v the boost gauge is normally fitted with a T-piece (and a short bit of extra hose) at the hose to the fuel pressure regulator.

Just choose any vacuum hose off the back of the inlet manifold, apart from the fuel vapour system (blue hose)

Before I do anything I will post a picture just to confirm.
Thanks
