Thread: Boost gauge

  1. #1

    Boost gauge

    So i decided to get a new boost gauge to make my interier look cleaner.
    I already had a boost gauge hooked up, and all i had to do is plug the tube into the new gauge and connect the wires.
    My old gauge was just strictly boost, my new gauge is HG and PSI. For some reason it wont boost on the psi side. But it will measure the vacuum on the HG side.

    Whats happening?
    The only thing i changed was the gauge, and also put my old DV back in cause my forge DV spring snapped.



    Thanks for the help

    Is the turbo actually making any boost? Since you swapped the DV at the same time, it could be that as well.

    how did that spring break?

    what happens if you hook up old gauge?

    is that new one a ebay special?

    Looks like the vacuum reading is wrong too. It should read 20 HG at idle, not 30. It could all be related.

    Fixed. Gauge was faulty. Took it back for $ return.
    New spring kit should be here tomorrow.
    Yellow spring is the one to run correct?
