    I know this may have been covered but its more of an observation...
    When i fitted my Inovate boost gauge i used a T peice to the DV vacume pipe. It worked fine and read steady.
    After a day at JBS looking at a few problems they moved the gauges pipe work to the fuel preasure regulator... With the reasoning that when the dv was actualy in operation it would give the gauge a false reading??
    Since this was done from time to time the needle flickers and doesnt hold still. Kind of like a vibration on the needle.
    Why is this and is it better when fitted to the FPR instead of the DV??

    Ask your tuner what spring they recomend for your tune!!
    How can you be sure your gauge is spot on?
    If you are having fluttering issues then you have a leak somewhere
