Default Boost Gauge Hose

I am changing where I have my boost gauge and I need a longer hose. I went to an autozone and they looked at me funny and told me my car didn't have a turbo. After a little convincing they said they didn't carry anything that size. Have you guys bought longer tubing anywhere? Thanks

you mean the whitish nylon tubing? I know for a fact advance carries it b/c i've bought it a few times. It's in the aisle with the gauges. AutoZone probably actually does too.

Manufacturer is SunPro.

If you're putting the boost gauge in the trunk or something, you can always get 2 I guess lol. put them together with a double-female 1/8NPT and some teflon tape.

All you need is a 1/8" hose, I bought mine at autozone, or try lowes

Hardware stores should carry a variety or nice thick walled vacuum tubing.

advance has an assortment in the back, just ask for the hose size, they sell by the foot.

use the black hose instead of the white plastic tubing, the tubing crimps too easily for my liking

dude i bought a 50 ft roll from the back of the store for like 20$ all you need is vaccum or small fuel line. 1/8th inch works for most I don't remember what size mine was exactly though.
