I hope you enjoy the instructions afro


Pre installation: Use the other completed guides available to remove your left air vent ball.
Below are the tools I used during the installation multi tool, scissors, wire stripper, hammer, electrical tape, wire taps, Teflon tape <not shown> and connectors
Parts not included where: the brass 3/8" fittings and brass tee.




Step 1: remove bolts point out in the red arrows to remove the panel under the steering wheel. Giving you access to the underside of the dash



Step 2: push out your interior light brightness adjuster from behind



Step 3: remove connector from the back of the switch and pull out the bottom of the dash



Step 4: add connectors to the end of your light bulb wires



Step 5: using the splices connect the black to black and white to red



Step 6: fit the vent trim ring around your gauge, then push your light bulb in and screw on your vacuum fittings with Teflon tape



Step 7: pull out the rubber grommet <shown removed> and route your vacuum line though the hole



Step 8: tap the hose that connects to the back side of the intake manifold and place it above the green valve. Use Teflon tape on all the connections. 
MAKE SURE YOUR VACCUM LINE IS NOT KINKED ANYWHERE



Step 9: enjoy the results



If anyone has questions feel free the personal message me or email me at Anthony@miataspeed.com

** Note: not shown. Wires and vacuum line are run though a gap between the dash and the HVAC piping. I also pulled a little more vacuum tubing in the HVAC pining to prevent any kinks.


**Note added at Anthony's request:

wastegate should be attached to the brake booster line. not teed into the stock bc

There has been a point of information made about the light wiring in this post.  It seems the suggested wiring didn't work for a forum member and he needed to wire the lights like this.  You might want to check the functioning of the light before you reassemble the switch in case you need to try the optional wiring listed below.

The black ground of the gauage should go to the white w/ red stripe from the dimmer...
