Hmm, not sure what my glowshift is, I will let you know if it reads 0 or lower limit next time I go down to my car.

Is my boost gauge off?

Its a glow shift. I just installed it. When the car is off the gauge is reading a vac level of about 1. Could there be a slight vac left for it to read?

But then I asked Mike D because he is the one who tuned my car and he said it should be around 16psi in 3rd gear. My gauge is reading around 18, maybe even a little more. That could be unrelated and thats fine though.
