Hey everyone. I think i either have a vaccuum leak, or my gauge is defective. Pease watch the video and you will see what i am talking about. I just reconnected and resealed all electrical and boost connections with electrical tape.
NOTE: listen close at the start of the video, you will hear this weird rattling/ electricity noise. I am almost certain it is coming from the boost gauge. It has been doing it more and more.
It's a mech gauge, seems like the fitting on the back of the gauge may be loose or you did not use plumbers tape when you installed the threaded brass fitting? I assume by hitting it, you are shaking the vac seal loose, i guess. not sure from the vid what exactly it is.
Gauge may just be broken too.
there was no brass fitting. i think the gauge could be broken.. i dont see how though. but for some reason, the gauge started reading the vaccuum correct now. maybe its because i re connected all of the connections? any other ideas? im gunna contact NSP and ask for a new one.
fuckin NSP. i thought they were supposed to be sooo great. well i sent them an email. anyways, it stopped getting caught, and now falls to 23hg. i know it should be beteen nineteen and twenty one but is this a possible vaccuum pressure? or should i just replace the gauge.?
well i emailed them. no response. for two days. it seems to be working good now. except in gear it can go down to 23hg, but in neutral at idle, 21hg. maybe my adjusting made it work. i just wont hit it anymore lol.
