Hi mate if your fiesta is a 1.6TDCi
then see my guide in the list below on fitting the st pod to the focus dash,
i have fitted a boost gauge to my 1.6TDCi but their is no small pipe to T in to like their is in the 1.8TDCi engine,
instead you need to purchase an adaptor and tap in to the big elbow pipe leading from the turbo.
im running a standard 1.6TDCi and getting 22psi peak boost

right i have done some bits but i have hit a problem. My pipe from my turbo is slightly different. Its not a flat pipe its got lots of ridges and no where to get a flat surface to get a decent air tight fixing.
As seen here:

Going to see someone tomorrow and see what ideas they can come up with.

But on the plus side i have sorted a place for the gauge to go:

Going to rediret the air away from the back of the gauge, thinking towards my feet.

Nice progress mate,
you could drill the plastic section and fit the roose adaptor i used for mine,
it will seal good as it comes supplied with a rubber seal for that type of fitment,
and for the record mate, ribbed hoses are stronger than the smoothe, they wont collapse under heavy suction.

I did think about drilling the plastic part but then thought about replacing the ribbed part. But maybe I will go back to the plastic. Cheers

It won't help cos its a boost gauge.The vent on the side between the door and dash does that job. Tho its never got that steamy in my car.
