I recently bought a Prosport (electrical) boost gauge. However, I cannot seem to find a reasonable vacuum line to T into. Any advice as to where or which line? Pics would be tremendously helpful!!

Really? You connect it to *any* vacuum line on the intake manifold.

I have a Prosport electrical boost gauge I bought from MAPerformance. Here’s my vacuum line. I plan to get a longer line in the future and run it in a more inconspicuous way. I fed the tube from the engine bay at the fender wall where the metal wire sits for the hood latch and into a solid rubber grommet that I made a small incision that is located near the interior fuse panel. It’s works for me. Although I will say that I cannot verify my readings as being accurate or not. I usually hit around 16lbs of boost on full throttle yet I’m on Stage 2 w/ KTuner V1.2. I don’t believe that’s correct though. But Iva has it like this for more than a year and it hasn’t bothered me nor have I even bothered to fix it.

Im running the buddy club sport chip. Im powering the boost gauge through the radio fuse siince i brought circuit adapter. I thought this was the vaccum line in the pic below.

Not sure what that is to be honest. I’m not super knowledgeable of stuff like this but I know the basics and I would tap into any good vacuum line. It’s all up to you. In my case it worked out but I will look for a way to increase accuracy while increasing simplicity as well
