HIGH Cruising Boost

Going 70MPH, level ground, wind 5MPH or less, shouldn't I get around 4PSI boost or something close? Basically little to nothing right?
I get 9-10PSI.
Yea, I know I have more rolling resistance since it's a dually, more weight with the fuel tank, tool box and stuff in the box, but I didn't think it'd make that much of a difference.

Mine isn't a dually but running like you mentioned, full of fuel, estimated 500 lbs in back with tool box and goodies i see around 5psi. I don't see numbers like you're seeing unless I have a trailer.

Faulty gauge? Has it always done this or did it start recently? Any change in MPG? (If it started recently) I think you would have noticed, but are the brakes dragging? I'm even not sure if that would cause enough resistance to double the boost.

Do you have 4.10s in your truck? That's probably why. I'm sure us srw guys with 3.73s are at the same boost numbers at that rpm.

Gauge works great. 4.10s, yes since it's a dually. That means at 70 I'm running about 2200RPM. At 55 it's about 17-1800RPM and that's where I get my 2-3PSI. But 2050RPM and above, that sucker really is lit up. I LOVE it

I'd say thats about normal then. I'm at 6 psi at 2000 RPM/76-77 MPH with my 35s.

Ok cool. I knew it wasn't over boosting just didn't realize it would go that high just cruising
