What size is the boost Vaccum hose size connecting it to a boost gage?

Do the fitting come together with the hose to connect

The gauge should come with a fitting but perhaps not one that applies to your car. Mine is tapped directly off of the inlet plenum. Not a super difficult chore for a guy with some skills.

However, If you are even a little bit weary, find a knowledgeable TR guy in your area and pay the money to have them install it for you.

Better to be safe, than sorry.

Includes 16 ft of hose and several fittings to make it work for you. Probably available at a local parts/performance store, too.

The circumference of a circle of the boost gauge tubing, Is it all a standard size regardless of what size boost gauge you have?

With the proper fittings, yes. The fittings are what matter. Boost pressure is boost pressure.

If you would like to hide the tubing, protect it, or both, run it through some vacuum hose.
It protects it though the firewall and makes it disappear in the engine bay.
