Well if mikey is right, then your boost numbers are normal.

holy crap dude use some punctuation. Please. Its hard to help when i cant understand you. I don't wanna read the posts 15 times to decipher what it says.

But going down the highway, anywhere from 0-5 psi is normal around 60 mph, and it just goes up from there.
