TAP does the full mod themselves...boost and timing they program and a nice
stiff spring is supplied.  Don't know about literature...I can call again,
and the stock gauge is pretty worthless anyway as it doesn't really measure
boost.  Trevor at TAP says to run a tee off the boost line going into the
control unit and set it up and leave it...or add a real gauge somewhere
else.  The original gauge is an electronic one that you can't use...unless
you feel like doing more mods just to its circuitry, I guess.
