In my situation the gauge was hooked up wrong. Did the exact same thing u were describing. Shows good vacume then when ya get on it the gauge snaps to zero showing no boost. My thread was 08 Roush no boost. The gauge turned out to be hooked up incorrectly.

They had some challenges getting it hooked up so wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

Thats too funny, are these guys testing their work!


I too had a lot of issues with the initial install. My boost gauge was fluttering like crazy and i could never tell if i had 6 or 9 pound of Boost. Even with my foot on the gas hard the gauge would stay in vacuum.

At that time my car felt a lot slower than previous with just my Steeda cai and tune.

After 35h of work + 2 ecu reflash by Roush they finally got it right, no more misfire and no more fluttering.

I'm suspecting a vacuum leak for you or they simply tapped the gauge at the wrong spot.
If you look at the gauge installation manual its not that complicated i'm wondering why they keep messing it up the first time.

Hopefully they'll fix it asap for you.

Got it back and yeah hooked up to wrong line but they did follow Roush's instructions. Funny, they called and Roush walked them through the setup. Now it works and because it was on wrong line I actually had some boost loss. Enough that I can tell. Wasn't sure what to expect from 200 more HP but she is QUICK!!!

I was hoping to get to Fast Fridays at KC Trends but working late so probably not going to make it. You'll see her soon.

Re: She has arrived
