Re: gauges hooked up

NO your boost should be upwards of 30, and boost moves very quickly. SOunds like you might have it plugged up or a leak in the tube somewhere.

Re: gauges hooked up

I have had a couple autometer boost gauges have a bad spot around 15-20 and the needle sticks, tried another gauge and went to 30. You can test this by regulating shop air down down to 30 PSI and shooting it in the tube.

Re: gauges hooked up

sounds to me that it is hooked to the MAP sensor or that MAP hose it will read 11 psi if it is hooked there

You call yourself a mechanic, you can't even fix a mechanical pencil.
