Yeah so i had the 0 to 30psi VDO Boost gauge from 42 draft designs and i had buzzing/rattling like crazy, any time i was on the gass but no boost(i think vacum related) and like every body else i had it over 9 psi.
so i picked up a $3 fuel filter from pep boys ( Purolator p/n F20004)
I cut the tube to the gauge right under my dash above the fuse box and used some thicker tube i had lying around to go over the boost gauge hose and fuel filter. cause no filter has a small enough adapter to fit in the boost gauge hose.
all i can say is i hear nothing at all. it worked perfectly... feel free to ask any questions

Re: Boost gauge fix (gti415)

I did the same thing, no difference in response for me, same readings, no buzz. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
