Does anyone else's gauge look like this when they punch it???? Mine doesnt it.... Mine is at about 10psi.. I was reading on the Chevy website they are saying the SS will hit 12psi.. Well if it does I guess I should bring my SS back up to the dealer again.. Anyone have the same problem???

I have heard alot of people complain about only getting 10 psi but most have have blammed it on the gauge being shitty and not the fact that they are not actually producing the boost.

dude, take it back... if it doesn't work, at least document it for later when they'll replace it or tell you that it worked fine when you bought it! Mine shows the full 12.5, so there are cars out there that it works on.

How many miles do you have on your car? I know this may sound funny but mine didn't hit over 10psi until around 2500 miles. Now the supercharger is alot louder and I am hitting 12psi easily without mods. Maybe the engine/supercharger both need broken in???????

i have 7000 and only hit the first line after 10psi which I believe is 11.25 psi. I believe each line is 1.25psi if my calculations are correct

Mine reads 18-19psi, at full throttle, o wait, nevermind that's spraying nitrous, damn, in all reality for normal driving I get the full 12.5 psi at WOT, but when I first got the car it would only boost to 10 psi, it needs break in before it goes to full boost potential... :eek:

PM me and let me know the results of the install, I'd really like to have some pictures and more than the one dyno sheet I've seen on here. If you can just post up a picture of the kit, that would be cool too...thanks I think I'm going to get mine on the 1st of next month, on payday...I'm so excited, hehe :rolleyes:
