I read somewhere that Autometer sells a nipple adapter for the back of the gauge so you can directly connect regular old vacuum line.

Does anyone know where I can pick this up? I would rather do this then route -3 SS line for my boost gauge.

You should just be able to run about an inch of the nylon line out the back of the gauge, then slip a vaccum line over the nylon and zip-tie it. Thats what I did for my pilliar mount, and everythings working fine for me. I wouldnt change the size of the line much, IIRC Autometer suggests 1/8"id. tubing...Josh

my guage came with one, so i clamped a vaccum line on it and ran it to the fpr vaccum line. works great. I wouldn't recommend using autometers crappy nylon ****.

If you call autometer they can hook you up. I called and said I didn't get two adapters with my gauge that I wanted to use in my setup. The guy searched around and found exactly what i needed AND SENT THEM TO ME FOR FREE!! I couldn't believe it. I got a pipe to barb adapter for the gauge and a T adapter that is pipe in the center and barb on the legs.
