Boost leak?

Hey guys.. I got the boost gauge in.. it was actually pretty easy. But my guage flutters when it gets near 15psi. I'm assuming that there must be a leak in the line. It doesn'tsound like it's leaking in the dash.. But Is there any trick or way I can get the beepbeepbeepbeep line to stop leaking?

The faring doesn't seem like it'd stop the hose from leaking.

i would check the little plastic y they gave you with the guage. mine was really brittle and i cracked it when i installed the guage so i went to the plumbing store and bought a brass one.
