not sure if its a vacuum leak, but at idle my vacuum is at -15. when i press the throttle it goes to -5 (which is normal) but then goes back down to like -10. doesnt matter how much i open the throttle it always goes back like -7psi ex. i press throttle it goes to like 0 but then drops back down to -7. if it is a vacuum leak it would only matter if the throttle is closed(right?) so since i get more vacuum when the throttle is open, what does that mean? its really messing up my car and i cant figuire it out. let me know thanks!

sounds like u said, a boost leak, search for the thread that shows u how to make a diy boost leak tester and try to figure out where its leaking from.

are u sure your gauge is ok? try and swap it w/ a known good one and see what happens

well the thing is... its not when im boosting.. cause i CAN boost no problem.. so its not a boost leak... my gauge is fine and its a autometer..
