Probably leaking into the gauge behind the dash... a good solution comes with 
question #2.

Here's what I prefer.  Buy the OEM coolant gauge that was produced for the 
4000.  There is one available that actually has numbers in it.  It fits into the 
spot vacated by the original boost gauge.  Then replace the boost gauge with 
an aftermarket unit.  I use an Autometer gauge that reads both vacuum and 
boost.  This can be mounted in an Autometer cup on the A-pillar on the door... 
right where the interior cover for the mirror mount is located.  It looks/works 
great, and is inconspicuous.
