Question for 1m owners

Hey im just curious to see if im leaking boost in my car

Anyone else who has a boost gauge could trt this out and tell me

When your in sport mode and you starting to boost 1psi to 2psi and you on a constant pressure on the pedal does your boost hopping up and down

Are you running a tune?

On stock tune:
In both Sport and Non-sport mode, I don't get boost loss at all.
In Sport I go from 12-13 psi to a taper of 10-11psi, but it doesn't oscillate. In non-sport mode, it just is a flat 11 psi.

I am on ess tune but im not talking about full boost.

It doesnt happen in normal mode just sport mode. When u start boosting very slowly like not even one psi and your foot is still at the same pressure watch your boost gauge it hops around. I think its because of throttle response but im not sure

Is the needle in the boost gauge flickering up and down very quickly - like almost rattling?

I'm asking because I'm not sure about the symptoms you're describing. If it is flickering it can easily be cured. Let me know.
