Hi everyone.

I've got a 2000 9-3 SE 5-speed HB - and love her to death. Recently, in repairing a radiator fan issue, I had to disconnect 1 vacuum line and the bypass pipe with valve, and charge air pipe. The vacuum line was crazy brittle, so I went ahead and replaced 4 old lines, and I replaced 2 o-rings- as they were brittle as well. Everything seems fine now, I just notice that when i first start the car that the needle of the turbo gauge starts in the middle of the white, and then after a minute or so of driving, settles that when I take my foot off the gas, the needle drops way down to the left, where I would think it should. Is this because it takes a bit to create a vacuum? Normal? I just never watched the gauge that carefully until completing this repair.

Sorry if it's a silly question - I would greatly appreciate your quick thoughts.

Tom :)
