Yes I understand but just relax, breath and repeat it until you are calmer and less frustrated. Look if all else fails, you plug the Tee connectors, install the gauge where you want it. Get the electrical connected. Then just put everything back as it was, until we find a solution.

Might be a pain in the arse now but will help you in the short term.:)

Do you have transport to get you to the Auto Parts store or do you have the right size vacuum plugs available at home?

It would be really helpful, if I had my throttle body back from Maxbore. I could tell you where the vacuum line enters. Then you can tap that line directly. You have to be behind the TB to pull boost. it's the only way I know of at the moment to pull boost pressure.

The two guys I emailed are busy at the moment and will get back to me as soon as they can.

Did you try calling SXTH Element direct and ask them?
Got it figured out thanks to 1FastStagea. So originally where we thought was the right spot is a vacuum chamber which helps with overboost protection. Below is a pic of the correct place Incase anyone ever plans to tackle this feat lol. As frustrating as this adventure was I must say the end results are mighty satisfying :cool: DB4ACF1D-E058-48AC-82DA-0D0F7AABFDC9.jpeg 34C93392-6949-4791-A544-CB24C8DBB4E3.jpeg

Yeah good job. And the gauge cluster looks sexy as all get-out.

Looks incredible, I’m in the process of sourcing and figuring the best and neatest way to fit a boost gauge to my I30n

I ended up using a dremel to make a small hole in the plastic firewall plug where the main harness comes through. It’s not too hard to get at you just need to remove battery, ecu, intake etc. And make sure you do it towards the top because the harness is fed through the bottom.

Did you have to source a t piece that went from 3mm up to 10mm to accommodate that hose?

Right I think im sorted! I have a stack gauge which comes with a 1/8 brass fixing into a 4mm t piece, spoken with a motorsport parts specialist and managed to get a fuel pressure fitment with 10mm hose ends and a male to male 1/8 brass fitment, so I can wind in the male to male and then attach the stack fitment. Sourced some silicone pipe to use as a sleeve to neaten it all up (the stack hose is white nylon) and give it heat protection. I managed to go through the grommet already made for the bonnet catch wire which is just above the throttle peddle (thanks to rich at it dyno for that info). Ive been in contact with aero force tech as recommended by @R Veloster N and we have agreed the Elantra gt dash is the same. So he has sourced a defrost vent and will start design and production eventually (they are making medical supplies due to the pandemic, so good on them!) For the mean time I have just bought a universal pod to stick on the dash untill the aero force vent pod is ready. I will have the gauge installed on the dash tomorrow but fittings likely to turn up early next week now :)

Hi Dan,
where did you source the fuel pressure fitment?

Hi guys.
I know that this is an old thread but if you are interested in gauge vent pods they are avaible here:
PS. Today I talked with them and got confirmation that they have them in european version too for other side of the car.
