Hey guys I'm relatively new here and I was wondering if anyone had any insight on my issue. I just installed the IPD boost gauge and noticed that at around 5-10 psi there is a pretty loud hissing noise. Is this normal? Also the included wire isn't quite long enough to reach the cigarette lighter in the consol; easily fixable but still annoying. Has anyone else with this gauge encountered either of these problems?

Check your boost line connection. If it isn't tightened down properly it can leak. OR you could have tightened it too much and actually cracked the tubing slightly, causing the line to leak right at the connection. If that's the case then remove the line, cut the end of the line off where it cracked, and reinstall. You don't really need to tighten down the connections extremely hard, just "hard enough" to keep a seal.
