Anyone have any ideas why a standard JDM boost gauge sometimes reads vacuum but sometimes doesn't? Gauge will light up each time the lights are turned on so no issues there... Could be the standard boost gauge control box in the engine?? Anyone have the part number for this so I can see if it resolves the issue? Other suggestions welcome.

Cheers.

It was the vacuum hose going to the solenoid, needs to be a small size/tight fit over the nipple otherwise it leaks and makes the boost gauge display funny figures

The problem with mine was the sender unit (which i think you called control box), was told an R34 sender would work but did the easy option and fitted a new gauge!

as soon as the stock gauge gives you problems, just replace it with a aftermarket one, but make sure you get a good one....
