It should read pretty much whatever you have at the manifold.

Well the gauge read 17. Ive never used one before, so Im guessing inch pounds or something. I didnt test the manifold pressure, I was in a hurry.

I did however find a hole in my metal line next to the exhaust and cant find one at any parts place. I was thinking of using a steel brake line. Would that work?

Alright. The hole is right next to the cat, so I guess I might have to fab a heat sheild or something to keep it from happening again, or remove the cat.
