Hi all,
just a quick question,
just took the car out after its been sitting for a week, and my boost gauge has mysteriously stopped working,
Most likely the hose has come adrift????
Can anone post a pic showing where the hose is routed and where it joins onto the engine.

It's probably failed around the Y piece that splits the feed from the manifold to the boost gauge and dump valve. It sits just below the intake manifold rubber elbow. If it's not immediately obvious, trace the hose back from the dump valve.

It won't make any difference to boost levels as the quantity of air that can be lost through such a small dia tubing is negligible compared to what is going in to the engine.

However the dump valve won't be working, so there will be be compressor stall inbetween gear changes.
