Autometer Boost gauge

alright so i got my gauges put in a few days ago all of them work great besides the boost gauge, after about 10 pounds the needle starts to get jumpy i use silcone on all the fittings when i ran it to the map sensor and i use teflon tape on the fitting that goes on the back of the gauge..anyone got any ideas whats going on?
thanks

If your intake is tapped, (the one in your sig should be), run your boost line to the intake and see if that doesn't take care of it.

I had mine in my map sensor and it jumped like that, when I put my IC on the hot pipe was tapped and I put the boost line in there and it fixed the jumping

my intake isnt tape but ill tape into it and run that boost line to it, that should make it more accurate right?i have a stock boost gauge one and its ok but i can already see the autometer is a couple more pounds accurate.but yeah when i a chance and not freezing outside ill get out on that
