Default Boost/vacuum gauge problem

I just installed my gauge yesterday after having to remove my turbo to get a broken bolt out. No cels or anything after it's back together and since the gauge install, it's showing when I'm in a higher gear boosting at low rpms, say about half throttle, that I'm spiking to 20 psi and then the needle starts shaking. Still no cels and I've used two different vaccum line sizes and same
Thing. I have the gauge ran the the line on top of the throttle body.
Is it just a faulty gauge? I ordered it off of ebay for like 20 bucks.
Btw I'm all stock too.

stock + no DTC + 20psi spike = bad gauge
