I definitely have a leak then, my boost gauge only shows 16-17 of vacuum.. It only shows 20 if that when I let of the throttle then goes back 16.. Got a little project for the weekend..

I might sound ridiculous but what do you guys think of wrapping them with like foil to protect it against heat a little?

and why isn't this stickied yet!?
