Boost gauge install is in Techinfo.

On your swap, we can't help you unless you tell us EVERYTHING you swapped, did, and dreamed while you did it. We need a very detailed accurate picture.

ok i will get a picture tomorrow. but as for what was swapped.

fuel pump, axles, complete engine and transmissioin, pcm was reprogrammed from INTENSE-RACING, for installation i had to buy a L36 to L67 swap kit from ZZPerformance.

another detail i forgot to mention is that my traction control seems to have went out the window. i don't have a control to turn it on and off but it seems to not work. i don't have the 'track off' light on. but i can sit the and smoke my tires though. the mechanic that helped me install the engine says that because i'm smoking my tires that is the reason that my car seems to be going slower. but i had my wife with me in the car and she claims that my car did go faster with my L36

Let'* start with boost. Follow my Techinfo article and get the gauge installed. Need to know what you've got at wide open throttle (WOT).

Also...check fuel pressure while you are hooking up the boost gauge.
