so my boost gauge is not reading and god damn boost now.its a Autometer phantom series. its reading vac. on it and when i go into boost it just fucking sits a 0 vac. i checked all the lines to the gauge. what would cause this? bad gauge? vac leak? my honda fighting back?

i had the same exact gauge and it eventually sat at -10 whent he car was off, -30 when idling, and when i went into boost (10 psi) it would read 5 and then drop to 2 or 3. i'd say it is a bad gauge.

i now have a faze boost gauge and it works great :TU:

if its reading vacuum correctly then it should also read boost. does it zero when the motor is off?

Man, I hope my boost gauge won't act the same way cuz I'm going for a complete Phantom I series gauge collection. Help you figure it out!

yea it goes to zero when i turn the car off. when you guys have your guages hooked up what did you tee off of? i have mine off of where the cruise control comes from the intake mani.

try checkin all the vac lines again and maybe replace them. and check for boost leaks in the charge pipes. i had a bad one ones when a pipes pretty much fell out but not enought to where you didnt feel boost and the bov still went off. so check all that. might be as simple as one clamp is loose

i T'd off of the FPR line, there could be a check valve on the cruise control line, allowing it to not see boost.
