Its a mechanical boost gauge which has a hose.There was a 'T' connector supplied with the package. I couldn't click the photos of the installation,because the connection to the turbo was done at night.[:D]

And thanks to my Dad for his help.
Zengetz also motivated me to do this,when I was stuck in the midway.
Finding the hose was the toughest part.In the user manual its written that it should be connected to the fuel pressure regulator.But when I asked MASS people,they said that there is no such hose there.[frustration]
At last I just experimented with the connection and it reads the pressure now.

It looks good.
But let me know what is the purpose of it? I haven't heard of it before.
Thanks drivetech4.
It shows the boost pressure.And if something goes wrong with the turbo,the boost gauge shows that.
Moreover its for a show-off.[;)]
