First thing I did when I got the car was check the engine for mice. Inside the shroud seems like a perfect place to build a nest. Don't know how to check thoroughly without removing the fan though.

The clock boost gage I had in the red rocket was a mechanical gage hooked into the same spot as the OEM sending unit. I never liked cutting into the brake line.
So if the gage is stuck on 1bar does that mean the sending unit is bad or that the electrical connection going to the unit is grounded out? I've got about 1/2 dozen 930 BOVs laying around so I can try a different sending unit. Won't do me any good if the problem is the wiring.

Thanks for the help!
