    stock boost gauge problem

    I have the stock boost gauge installed and i noticed that when the car is off, the needle is below the 0 line. Is there anyway to fix this myself and what should I do to recalibrate it?

    thanks,
    Dan

    i think it has to do with your altitude, the needle isnt gonna be right at 0 since your above sea level.

    I'm in the California valley...below sea level. Besides, it's been at 0 pascals for the year and half that i've had the car for. How much does a good boost gauge go for?

    thanks,
    Dan
