    did you tap the line near the BOV?

    is the BOV secured tightly to the intercooler?

    check all the vacuum tubes for the gauge.

    Assuming you are running stock ECU and that is what controls your boost(minus a MBC or EBC) you only get ~7lbs boost for the first and second gears.

    i just tightened it up and did a few minor adjustments and took it for a spin, i got it up to about 11 psi, im wondering if the gauge is faulty. the needle tends to shake up and down at times, it kinda looks like its broke, i dunno if its suppose to do that or not?

    Make sure you don't have any kinks in the line.
