turbo info

recently did up-pipes on my 2002 f350 and when i had the turbo off noticed it had 1.00A/R on the housing.from my research i've found the factory used a .87 A/R,would the difference in housing size explain why i only make 17-20 psi of boost when i accelerate hard,been told i should be making more than that.have a edge evolution set on 100hp(bad tuner but makin it work till i can afford a good custom chip) the edge reads through the OBD port dont know if that has any influence or not on my boost readings
