cts issues

Im not sure if i did something wrong but recently i added a insight cts to my truck i also put a non vgt turbo on it the turbo isnt spooling all that great but a few days ago my stock gauge and my cts keeps reading 7# or 23# of boost. Thats at an idle if the turbo is producing boost it just builds from the 7 or 23 like its 0. Can i do anything to fix this. Im just not sure why both gauges are messed up?

Your CTS is reading what your PCM is seeing for Boost, simply repeating what your computer is seeing.

As for the solution, with a non-VGT turbo, I don't know where to start.

That makes since about the gauges being the same. I just cant figure out why it worked fine for a few weeks and now the gauges are going crazy

Sensor going bad is the most likely cause, or a connection coming loose.
