    Noisy Boost Gauge

    Have recently fitted a boost gauge into the centre vent. However when the car goes onto boost the gauge seems to resonate. Any ideas on how I can cure this? Anyone else experienced this?

    Its an AWE tuning vdo gauge, so not cheap at all. Won't sticking cotton wool in the hose affect the boost reading?

    nope. you only need a little bit, it just stops the pulses from teh turbo affecting the guage.

    either that or you can use a small fuel filter in it.
