Now that I have it all hooked up, I agree, it's too low. Eventually I'll move it to the pillar, along with an EGT and maybe an oil pressure gauge. Just wanted to get it installed. Now I know how much boost I'm making

Mostly just looked at it and wished the weather was warmer so I could pull the transmission and fix the (probably) borked shift forks...

I miss my car.

Today my Skoda turned 290000km, celebrated by making a to-do list for this year. Timing belt change, front rotors and other misc small stuff.
