for the boost gauge ford deleted a lot of vacuum lines in the 2013 vs my old 2011. they have one line coming from passenger side turbo and one from the intake tube going to air box and then they go to a sensor/control valve. Then to the wastegates. i T'd the boost line on the pressure pipe on the passenger side. only downside is it only sees boost not vacuum.
(gauge was custom made by speedhut)
The white wire you used from the brake controller, I take it this is the 12V switched source you used for the gauge? I also am installing a boost gauge I just got from speedhut (revolution line) electronic boost gauge and am trying to figure out where I need to bring power from. My gauge actually has three separate 12V feeds, one for the switched source to power the gauge electronics and transducer, and the other two are for lighting. Is yours set up this way? What I planned on doing was running the 12V switched wire to a Key On source, and tying the other two sources together and running them to a dimmer source. I'm really not sure what to do as I really would like this to function like the gauge cluster, which has lighting all of the time and just dims when you turn your headlights on. So I have considered tying all 3 12V wires together so that the backlights are always on to mimick the cluster. My only worry is that it'll be too bright.
How did you set yours up to function and how's it working out?
As far as the vac line I'll be doing something different than you did, as I want the vac side of the gauge to be functional.
