how did you do the gauge in the vent hole? I know a lot of people around here run them

I have a 52 mm vaccuum gauge to put in so I will know the vaccuum on the top of the supercharger

Why do you want to know vacuum over boost? I cut the top vent off the housing and glued the vent plate on to block the air and slid the gauge in

The factory gauge will show boost, just to make it fun I got a vacuum gauge to see how flow is before the SC, I plan on trying to port an extra TB

I thought the factory boost gauge was spot on until I got a vac/boost gauge. The stock gauge said 9lbs at WOT and 8 in. vac, the new one said 11lbs and 17 in. vac. Right where I thought it was

Where did you get your rear STB? How hard is installation on that part?

I got around to taking a pic of the pods at night. My hands were a little shaky that night
