Boost gauge doesn't appear to be indicating accurately. I'd be more concerned with that other problem with the fuel injector open ckt. Need to commence more troubleshooting on that one as to whether or not it is true. Engine would have to be running pretty rough I'd imagine. The fuel injectors are broken down into two ckts. with three injectors on each basically.

My boost guage started acting weird last night. Sometimes it was fine but others it was bouncing allover the place @ zero throttle my vaccum reading would sit at zero vacum as soon as I touch the gas it will blast to ten and then start bouncing all over then a few minutes later it would be fine. I immeadiately checked all the vacum lines but no obvious signs of a problem.

rich00SSEi: elaborate on your symptoms with yor gauge we could have a common cause and possibly solution. I agree withe mrkwb your other issue is more important I suggest starting a new thread for it.
