So when fitting an after market boost gauge you run it off the carb base to get the vac as well ? So if i do up the boost a little wit out modifying the carb wot psi would be ok or would i have to mod the carb ?

10psi carb base anything above really needs setting correctly, but saying that I would still get anoy increase in boost checked with afr setup

Where exactly do you take feed from the carb base then? I'm getting round to fitting my gauges so might as well do it right.
