How is the gauge angled? Would 0 be completely level or is it on an angle?

Do a few full boost pulls in 4th gear and see what the reading is. Without the car on I wouldn't be too concerned with the readings. Car on at idle it should be below 0 of course. What's that reading?

Try contacting prosport themselves. From the huge thread they have on Nasioc it seems they do a pretty good job of helping people with problems or replacing faulty gauges/senders.

You should be sitting at least 20 inches of mercury at idle, more like 22-23.... Mine doesn't read exactly zero when it's just on and the car isn't running and it reads spot on when the car is actually running.

The problem is that you bought Prosport gauges. These are the same exact gauges you could have bought on eBay for 1/3 the price under a different brand name.

Never really noticed the similarities.... that's funny. I don't remember prosport gauges looking like that.... From "back in the day".

Haters be hatin!

I love my prosports, they've never done me wrong and read spot on to my logs.

Now my wideband I couldn't trust to prosport as you're actually using that data to tune, Innovate all the way for that.
