    going to move this one as it's not really what the 'how-2's is for..

    for technical questions like this can you pop into car chat??..

    i'm just going to nudge this over.

    Yup, Duncan has fitted one to his Signum but his is a 2.0T petrol. There are some pics somewhere, i think in the How 2 section.

    EDIT: just found it HERE
    Some scary pics in there so be warned

    lol @ Caterman and the scary pics bit! I always intended on doing a proper How 2 on fitting it. Got all the pics, just not got round to doing it.

    The main thing you need to suss out is where to connect the T-piece on your engine. On the majority of petrol engine vehicles, the boost reading is taken from the inlet manifold - after the throttle butterfly valve (a vacuum will be present with the engine ticking over).

    On a diesel, I don't know where you'll tap off from.
