I have an s4 turbo and I hooked up a boost gauge at it reads about 10 - 15 vaccum and im wondering if this is wrong or maybe I hooked it up wrong but I mean the boost level seems right at about 6psi...



is this a normal reading or a bad reading? also what would the problem be.







thanks

it depends on port size and compression also if you have a vac leak

well stock port and I dont know the compression so I would like to know what everyone elses is reading...



SO is a reading of 10, and then 15 with no throttle applied and just coasting bad?



Would this be due to low compression?



If it was a vac leak would it still display boost correctly?



thanks in advance

a vac leak turns into a boost leak as soon as the turbo starts making boost, so no.
