Is the needle suppossed to flutter sometimes? I think I may be having problems, since I don't fluctuate pressure on the gas, yet the needle shakes. Anyone else had experience with this problem? It doesn't happen all of the time, and yes I did search.

Yeah I would try a boost leak test my boost gauge did this for a while and I found a couple hoses with minor leaks but it stopped them.

Doubt it. I don't think anybody should answer this guys questions until he has definitive proof he has done a boost leak test. :rolleyes:

What did you tap into for the boost source?

I tapped the fuel pressure solenoid on the driver's side. I read that's the best place to do it.

We have already told him this countless times. He doesn't listen or doesn't know how to do a boost leak test I guess. :tat: :chair:

I believe advice has been dispensed and this subject has been covered numerous times. Closing for redundancy.
