    Unhappy omori boost guage w/ fluttering needle

    Just replaced my stock column mount with an omori 45mm mech boost gauge.
    I followed the directions on J-spec's website, but I notice that the needle flutters like a banchee when idling at a stop, or even under load frequently ( mostly @ PT). Anyone with any ideas on where to start checking?


    edit: after running around a bit at lunch, it occurs while in neutral (stop lights, etc) and some what under different throttle posistions.

    hmm...not really sure what it could be. if you havent already, id just suggest going over your vaccum line and make sure there arnt any leaks in it

    Where did you get the Omori guage from? Ive been wanting to swap out my stock boost gauge w/ an omori as well

    my omori boost gauge also flutters a lot, but i noticed that it starts fluttering on inclines and uneven streets it still reads boost correctly

    i was thinking about replacing my oe guage w/ the omori 45mm to match my egt.

    should i reconsider? is this common?

    do you think it's still accurate?

    i've never heard of that before... i'd guess that it's defective..

    dR, you're defective.

    PLZ send all questions on Omori Boost Gauges to Dark Rex. PM at least 3-4 times to make sure it goes though.

    I wouldn't reconsider yet. I may have eyeballed a poor connection in my hoses from when I replaced my pvc valve(same day as gauge) so when I try to fix it, I'll let you know.
    Coinsidentally, I noticed that when idling at a light, if I pinch the hose a pit, the fluttering stops. Let me check my connections first to be sure.....
