If your 93 didn't come with a stock boost gauge, you won't have a MAP. But you will have a vac line that goes to the fuel pressure regulator. You can tap into that line or any that comes from the same vac tree.

Wrong.

Tee into the vacuum line for the FPR. That'* where the MAP sensor on an SSEi pulls from. Techinfo is your friend. This is true for the Series 1.

his car motor is SC (from his other post) so he will have a MAP, and that where you are teilling him to tap into feeds the MAP......so ya ok......same difference

and i will stay out of the 28th percentile posting forum

An L67 car with no boost gage (like an Olds 98 ) will not have a MAP sensor. That'* all the series I L67 used it for.

Correct. Pat'* rating just went down again.

The ONLY way to get a MAP sensor on a Series 1 L67 is IF it came with a factory boost gauge. That is the sole purpose of the MAP sensor on our early generation L67'*.
