I noticed it today. When i go WOT and boost hit's i can hear and feel it coming out the back of the gauge. I don't know the exact location, but i'm assuming it's the bolts where the vacuum line enters the gauge. I have the autometer gauge. Can i fix this with teflon tape? Should i trim the front of the hose and reinstall the hose? any advice would be very helpful...

When I installed my autometer gauge I used teflon tape on the brass threads to make sure i had a good seal. Where the plastic line goes to the gauge is a crush fitting, probably should replace that and just becareful everything thing in it lines up right. The little ferrel in that fitting gets crushed to seal the connection.

nevermind. Turns out it's the hose itself that's leaking. It has a hole in it. I guess i'll cut the end off beyond the hole or tape over it. Not sure yet...
