Any one flying with a 914 do you have a boost pressure gauge? If so where did you get it and how did you hook it up.

The 914 requires that a Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) (A.K.A. Boost) Gauge is installed.

Google any Avionics suppliers, Aircraft Spruce e.g., for "Manifold Air Pressure Gauge" and you will find more choices than anyone needs.

The 914 boosts to 39.9" so be sure to pick a gauge/sender that covers well into the 40s.
10"-50" is typical.

If you are installing a new 914, be sure to read the Installation and Operators manual thoroughly.
If this is an existing installation, the MAP Gauge should have been installed with the engine.
