P&G isn't something I've experimented with yet. Not trying to pop start my car that often. Haha 90% of my daily commute is freeway. Where did you hook your vacuum gauge up too?
My 98 Civic is OBD2, so I didn't need the vac gauge. I just got the Ultragauge and plug it into the OBD2 dataport. I have though of getting a vacuum gauge anyway, though, for the retro look and to have it in my OEM gauge cluster.

Here is a guy with the gauge installd via a "T" in one of the vacuum lines into the intake manifold. Then through the firewall. That's how it's done.

The two tone green dash is ugly though. Yikes!

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
