my idle is normal 17-19hg but i cant boost past 15psi!!!! WTF ..

im supposed to be at 18 and spiking to 21 with the "monster"file.

so would this be a boost leak somehwere? when we were installing it the "T" broke and i used a different one that i had. that wouldnt cause problems would it?

The one i used doesnt have the brass piece in it.

OH and theres a SWOOOOOOOOOOOOSHHHHHHHH sound coming from my boost guage. is that normal?

ive never delt with boost guages before so im totaly new to this.

so any ideas as to why i cant Break 15PSI? [confused] [confused] [confused] [confused]

Sounds like your connection at the gauge is leaking.

yup thats what I think, make sure the connection is tight and if you can get the sound to go away, your boost will be back
