i finaly got my guages all wired up and my boost guage isnt reading any boost what so ever im asuming the guage isnt working bc i put the t in the map line then wired to the guage well after i left the shop i unhooked the hose from the side of the manifold and got some body to give it throttel and put my finger over the hole and it was definatly putin some pressure. so i am asuming that it is the guage what do you guys think am i doin somin wrong and the hose that goes from the t to the guages has no holes that i know of its a bran new hose wats up with this.

mine was not reading either. i had the gauge in the top of a 3 gauge piller and lowered it to the bottom and cut the t a little bit... it started showing pressure then.. but then again it may be the gauge...

Well if it was that self-explanatory, you would not have posted up what you did.;)

i had a similar prob then i went to the hardware store and got a thicker wall vacc hose and it worked after that. the thicker wall resists kinking. also make sure that you have hose clamps around each connection.

Check the plastic tee to see if the holes are blocked. My pressure line used 1/8" nylon hose with brass compression/ferrule hose end fittings. This line and fittings are available at hardware stores in bulk if you need a longer hose to prevent kinking; it kinks easily.
