The hose probably popped off the back off the guage. You need to pull the guage cluster and make sure it's still connected.

Did you check the boost line in the 2 places that were recommended? That would cause the problems you are explaining.

that would cause the no read on the gauge and the stall?

Yes it would, the guage has no reference and it causes a vacuum leak when disconnected.

lol this may sound stupid but I want my supercharger to be louder.... I read earlier that you can weld the sound ports shut to kill the whine......but I wanna go opposite with it

Closing the sound ports makes it louder, not quieter. Easiest way to get more supercharger whine is to change to a cold air intake that uses a steel or aluminum pipe.

I need to ask another q....I hear a loud knock coming from my engine on hard acceleration, kinda sounds like my lifters but it doesnt do it at idle.....My dad said something about the throw out bearing but thought id ask on here too.....oh and does anyone know where i can find a set of bolts that holds the supercharger top on.....someone replaced mine and there is a leak around the top now.

If theres a vac leak around the blower top - pull it off and reseal it with Copper RTV or a good gasket if you can find one. New bolts may help, but won't totally cure the problem.

If you want to make the blower whine more noticeable, replace the stock rubber intake tube with an aluminum one. It will definiately be noticeable after that.

Loud knock could be a bearing maybe? I remember a knock when the bearing went out on my dad's 94 SC.

Yes the cats being plugged and breaking up will defanitely do that. My 4.6 did that too. I would check the prices on high flow cats. they are cheaper than you think. I took mine to a muffler shop, had 2 new cats and mufflers put on for just over $300
