Audi RS6 Boost Gauge Install

I've completed a custom install of a VDO boost gauge in my 2003 Audi RS-6. There are no pre-fabricated pods for the RS-6 so I had to fabricate and customize one of the dash vents to hold the gauge. The install was time consuming, but it came out well and gives me a real time view of boost levels.

I tapped the boost line into the vacuum hose between the fuel pressure regulator and the intake. I had to get a bit creative on how to route the hoses to keep them from kinking. I also replaced all of the other vacuum lines since most looked pretty old and had visible cracks.

To install the VDO boost gauge in the vent, it took quite a bit of fabrication to use the factory directional vent vanes. They looked pretty rough during the fabrication, but it turned out fine.
