i intstalled my AWE boost gauge and got some questions.
ok two problems i've run across:
1. the gauge is making a very ugly noise and i need to know where i can get a buzz eliminator?
2. i'm APR chipped and im hitting 15 psi and spiking to a good 18psi... but sometimes i notice my needle head swaying back and forth between like 10 and 15... does that mean i have a boost leak? it will hit 15, go down to 10, and then creep back up to 15.... all in a matter of about 1.5 seconds...
thanks guys[az]

AWE includes a buzz eliminator...if you don't have it with the gauge then they do sell them seperately.

Sounds like a boost leak maybe? Check the t-connection you made for the vacuume line, or intake manifold connection, bpv connection, and from the bpv back to intake. Also check your L-hose on the upper right top of engine...that sometime cracks.

check you gauge taps. if its not a signal problem it might a problem w your wastegate/actuator

Some use an inline fuel filter to kill the buzzing aswell. I've seen that more common with VDO gauges.

Your boost flucuating like that is most likely your DV. You can get a new one at the dealer for around $30.
