install 1x T-piece on a vacuum line that sees vacuum and boost. the plenum would be the first place to look. attatch a piece of vacuum hose to said T-piece. puchase an oil gauge hookup kit with the brass fittings and the white plastic hose if you don't already have these parts. feed the hose through to th engine bay from inside the car. slide the hose into the vacuum hose you set up and put a little clip on it. attatch the other end of the hose to your gauge with the brass fittings. if the fittings arn't already on the the plastic line, fit them now. It helps if they aren't because it will let you slide the hose into the cabin from then eingine bay instead of the other way round, which i think i easier. attatch boost gauge to it's desired location (I suggest inside your glovebox. attatch the wires for lighting to your instrument lighting, or just accesory power if you don't want to bother making it swithch on only with lights. headlight switched power can be found traveling into the back of your instrument cluster for it's lights. steal that and you're all done.
drive car, make sure hoses are holding and gauge reading correctly. go boosting.
