PSI???

Can anyone tell me what the 7.3 in a 96 makes for boost from the facotry? I'm looking at a putting in a 3 gauge pillar pod with boost/pyro/trans temp, to go along with my dp tuners chip. I see they have anywhere from 30 to 100 psi, i would like to have the vac/boost gauge but if its going to exceed 30psi it will have to be boost only.

Thanks in advance,
-Adam

I haven't pegged my 35psi gauge yet, with all of my mods. So far 27 is as high as I've got.
