Default boost gauge problem

I just installed an autometer boost gauge (mechanical) and I am reading a vacuum of about 14 at idle and the only time I see boost is when I get the engine spun up to 3000 + RPM's and then it is about only 5lbs. I connected it to the BOV hose as I have seen on this site with a brass T. I used a 6in vacuum hose and then an adapter so I could run the autometer nylon tube the rest of the way to the gauge. I tried a search and didn't find anything. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like their is something pinching your nylon hose probably... Cause the vac is too low and so it the boost.

After I installed my boost gauge I had the hose pinched completely off (ooops) and my gauge never moved off zero. Just check your hose to your gauge, unless you feel like there might be a leak at the T. Did you use teflon tape on the brass parts? I dunno, just some things to look at. I connected my boost gauge at the same place and I see 20 vac and 14 boost.
