well you have the tubbing that goes to the gauge, and the T-fitting. you can cut the vacum hose that exist (beetween the FPR&manifold) by cutting it in two. what other part are you talking about....?????? :crazy:

I think I know what you mean. You have a "T" connector for a normal rubber vacuum hose and it won't mate directly up with the small nylon hose that came with your gauge. You've temporarily used a vacuum line that fits over the "T" and the nylon line to bridge the gap but you're looking for a little brass fitting to hook the nylon to the "T".

Is that what you meant?

I don't have an answer. My solution was to use vacuum line right up to the boost gauge and then do just what you did by sliding the vacuum line over the nylon hose and zip-tying it. I used a little teflon tape between the two lines to help seal things up. Good luck finding the proper fittings.
