    Smile Boost gauge running low..and whistle sound.

    Got 2 questions about my 02 WRX Its 100% stock as of yet. Two questions...

    My factory boost gauge reads negative on idle and during periods where I dont rev it. Is that normal for stock WRX?

    2nd question is, I hear a slight whistling sounds as i accelerate, is that normal for turbo to sound? keeping in mind my set up is 100% stock.

    Thanks!!!

    Yes. If the turbo isn't compressing the incoming air to a level greater than that of the outside atmospheric pressure than the intake manifold is in vacuum, as your gauge shows.
