Pictures of a 200tdi boost gauge

Does anyone have any pics of how they fitted a boost gauge fitting to the manifold?

Drilled and tapped the manifold for 1/8" NPT. Screw in a 1/8" NPT brass fitting. No pictures, but there is not a lot of free space to put it, so you just do it where there is room.

I drilled into one of the intercooler pipes (near to the outlet of the turbo) and inserted the union there.

my union was brass, so it wouldn't cut a thread into the (steel) pipe that well, with with a large tap, i cut a bit of thread enough for the union to screw in, i then sealed it with panel sealer!

did the job, it's now set in solid rubber.
