Hi Guys,

I am in the process of installing my Boost and EGT gauge in the beast, I want to know where everybody is drilling the hole through the fire wall.

Cheers

You shouldnt need to drill any holes, there are big black rubber plug type things (gromets) in the fire wall that you just make a tiny little slit in and feed the wires etc through. On my 4.2 theres one just under the intercooler and a bigger one on the passenger side down low

It's amazing how many cables you can poke through the bonnet release cable grommet.

Ok Guy's 'n' Gal's
I have done all the work running the wires up to the Pod/Gauges where has everyone taken there power from, earth from and the lights from.
I have looked at some threads about tapping the lights from the dimmer switch if so what colour wire are you splicing to.
Also were are people pulling power from (out of the fuse box Ing. side)?

Cheers

Chris

Lights from the change tin (ash tray) light. I just cut the light off and ran the wires up to the pillar pod.

Power from the ciggy plug.

I'll do that, do you have to remove the lower part of the centre console or can you pull the cig plug out with out that?
