How to use boost gauge and Amp power steps?

I’m trying to see if anyone has installed Amp Research steps and also a boost gauge such as Edge CTS2 because they both need the OBD2 port so is there a way to bypass OBD2 port or am I just out of luck? Currently using Amp power steps and would like to also have a boost gauge.

There are OBDII splitters on the market which will allow you to use both. Some lower quality ones may cause both items to do funny stuff. Just make sure to get a high quality splitter.

The same people who make your CTS2 display also make a splitter, presumably good quality. Go to their website for more information.

Heres a trail to follow, you decide?

AMP=$95
Autometer = $39

Worse case you might have to hardwire your amp steps, thatís how mine are before they came out with the OBD2 connection.
I did try 2 Insights on a OBD2 splitter, one had TCC Slip which I wanted to view, the other didnít, neither would work.
Eventually Edge added it to my CTS2.
