Sounds good, I bought new fasteners for the little hose today, hopefully that will hold me over until I get the new hose. I am pretty sure it is that hose that is leaking, because the fastener was in bad shape and wasn't very tight.
Edit: No more large fluctuation after putting the new fastener on, but there is still a very (~2psi) slight one before the boost levels off and stays steady. I am attributing that to a smaller boost leak that can be solved by replacing the hoses.
Thanks for the help everyone!

I have a 05 wrx and i just recently put in a deadbolt 16g and after i hit 4000 rpms i hear a loud whining noise. it made the same noise when i had the stock turbo in. I think its a boost leak but im not sure. Can anyone help me with this?
