I have searched and can not find a picture or good description of where to drill / tap and tee for a boost gauge / waste gate on a Defender 200tdi motor.
From my reading in the 300tdi threads it looks like the best place to locate the tee is the intake manifold. It looks like most people with 300’s and disco 200’s use the back of the intake manifold but the Defender 200tdi has a different configuration.
The posts I have found have simply said to find a free spot and drill / tap, however my motor is currently sitting on the floor so I do not know exactly where everything will run once installed and do not want to tap / drill just to find out I picked a bad location that interferes with something else.
Hopefully someone can post a pic or location and help with the following questions
1. Where is a good location to install the fitting on the Defender 200?
2. The rear of the intake on the 200tdi Defender intake manifold looks thin to me, is it thick enough to drill and tap to install a tee or do you have to do it in the main part of the intake manifold?
3. Should any type of thread sealer be used in this area to seal the threads?
4. Does it matter if I use a tee with 2 1/8 nipples or just one 1/8 nipple and then tee off the hose later?
