Pegging the boost gauge????

I am very concerned about pegging out my boost gauge. If I get on it pretty decent between 1/2 and 3/4 throttle my boost gauge pegs out. I would like some advise and opinions.
I just installed a Spartan tuner, running the 210 L/L tune and a Pro-FLO 4'" exhaust turbo back exhaust with DPF delete. My truck feels awesome compared to my old stock set up. I am just scared I am going to tear something up.

I have a 2009 King Ranch Super Cab 4wd.

I ordered a S&B CAI that has failed to arrived in a timely manner. Will this addition hurt or help my current problem?

EGR Delete kit and Coolant filter kit is here at the house. I like installing one thing at a time, just to see differences.

How fast are you going? Are you pulling anything? Most of the time my boost gauge is between 5 and 20psi. The only way I go even above thirty is if I am really getting on it hard or my stepdad is using my truck to pull his 28 ft crownline boat over 100mph. It is something to keep your eye out for. Check your turbos to make sure everything is normal. If the there is boost, at least you know the turbo is working.

The only problem you have is mathematical. The boost gauge goes to 40psi, a tuned truck (Spartan, H&S, etc.) can easily boost more than that.

So I should be ok. I just produce more boost than the gauge reads?

I know a lot of trucks make high boost. I think its more in the tuning than anything. I have a 71mm lp turbo and I don't see much more than 42 lbs of boost even from a hard pull. I think tuning has a lot to do with it. I am going to try gearhead tunes eventually. Also the more restrictions you remove the boost should go down but make the same amount of power.

Another thing you may want to do is take off and clean your ebp sensor and tube and your map sensor.

I am tuned. I now know how to monitor my boost on my DASHDAQ. My factory boost gauge was a little off too.

I've bounced stock tune trucks off 40PSI before.
