Boost gauge question?

OK,
I installed my gauges, and after a few wiring "issues" everything is working like it should. Except my boost gauge doesn't drop below 6* when the power to it is off. It never goes below 6*. What's wrong, anybody know?? It stops and rests at 6*, like that is 0 or something.

Thanks for any help guys!

Well, I just took it for a ride. Still never went below 6.
I think all of the readings were about 6 lbs. too high. I even got it pinned at 35 lbs. for a split second. There's no way, with my current mods, and a stock turbo that I'll get near 35 lbs. What is going on?
It's t'd into the map line.
That was the only gauge I didn't have hooked up last night when I took the truck out after installing the gauges, because I didn't have the 1/4" T and the 1/4" barbs I needed. So I rode around for a while with other end of the boost line just hanging out under the hood, not hooked up to anything. Could that be part of the problem?? I need help.

thanks
chris

I don't think that would've done anything. I'd take the guage back, there has to be something wrong with it.

I called the guy I bought it from today, he thinks that it maybe didn't get calibrated right, so he is sending me another one at no charge.
Hopefully that does the trick!!
