19-20 before a check engine light pops on. it will be hard to hit those numbers too. realistic numbers w/out a chip will be somewhere in the ball park of 15-18ish

today i had some gauges installed.. and when me and the diesel mech.. went for a ride... all i can get is 9psi..... so well started to look at everything... the line to the gauge was good no kinks or anything of that nature.. he ran out of time to figure out why... and we didnt dig to deep into it.. any ideas

ya 9 psi is too low. I would say for sure a boot is loose. if your egts are high then for sure its a boot.
