boost rattle?

I just installed my pyro, boost, and tranny gauges today. They look great and I am very happy with them, but what kind I do to stop the boost gauge rattle? I tightened the jet down before installing, but it still rattles pretty good. I did not tap into my elbow, I used the "T" fitting on the map line.

Drill and tap the intake elbow and use a 90* fitting. That should make it a lot better.

thanks for the reply!


What causes the gauge to rattle?

is there a difference in reading accuracy between the map line and elbow?

I would think the intake elbow would be just as accurate. Not sure about why on the rattle.
