I found this out AFTER I ran the tubing through the firewall and into the engine bay. Im hoping I can just tape the two tubes together and pull the new tubing I bought straight into the engine bay when it arrives.

Overall I'm kinda meh about the numbers. It seems like the Mustang was reading SUPER low for everyone.
I went with the ECS gauge kit (vent mount, their gauge, boost tap and tubing and ran into the same issue with the tubing diameter being WAY too small. I did get the tubing to work however, had to soak the end of the tubing in boiling hot water to make it soft enough that I could force it over the end of the boost tap nip - got it on and it and its been on there nice and snug for about a year now, no issue.

Regarding Mustang dynos, I've heard they run low on their measurements and Dynojets are a better measurement for AWD output.

I ended up buying new silicone tubing from 42DD and it was WAY more quality. Super easy to fit and they included zip ties for added security.

And yea, Im not too concerned over those dyno numbers. The car is quick and even with those whp/wtq numbers it's making somewhere around 270/300 crank assuming a 20% loss.
