Boost guage -> Whistle = boost leak. HELP!
OK here’s my situation. I bought an auto meter boost gauge and installed it the other day. First off the line they provided to tap into my vacuum line was a skinny plastic line that kinked up. So I went to home depot and bought vinyl line ( it’s the clear type of pressure line like the ones you use for your fish tank if that make any sense) Anyways we cut the vacuum line next to the valve and attached a plastic tee connector to fit 1/4 inch tubing.
Problem: Now whenever I reach 10+ psi I get this wheezing or whistle sound. Also while we were installing the gauge a line underneath the intercooler a tube came off (atached to the vac line) but my friend reached underneath and plugged it back in. At least I think its properly back on the nipple it came off (what’s weird is that hose underneath the intercooler had no clamp or anything holding it.).
Any suggestions on what is causing this noise?
