The APR Boost Tap for the 1.8T and 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 engines is a simple, yet elegant solution for referencing boost pressure and vacuum as is commonly necessary for boost gauges. The boost tap plugs directly into the factory intake manifold via the boost pressure sensor bung and can be removed at any time without any permanent modification.

Boost TapConstructed from lightweight injection-molded glass-filled polypropylene with a Viton o-ring, the tap has very tight tolerances for leak free operation. The reference hoses connect to the rear of the tap via a barbed stainless steel connection point and conveniently routes out of sight. A special fastener was developed to ensure a solid OEM-style-connect between the boost tap, MAP sensor and manifold.
In addition to the boost tap, APR provides several extra components to help suit each individual’s needs. For those requiring more than one reference source, a T-Fitting allows for more tapping points. In the case where a mechanical boost gauge is used, the brass restrictor pill limits flow and cures gauge buzz. Just less than 100 inches of 200 PSI hose is included with OEM style ear clamps and black cable ties to allow for neatly routing hose through the engine bay.
The APR Boost Tap comes with a lifetime warranty and is the only solution one will need for years of reliable operation.
