Does the truck feel under powered? You can always hook up another gauge and compare the readings?

Where does your boost gauge hook into.

Maybe your wastegate is opening too early. Unplug (or tighten) it and see what you get. Can you tighten the banks WG?

Is your gauge electrical or mechanical. mechanical uses a rubber or poly hose to obtain its reading. If that line is after the boost fooler then that would be the reason why you only have a reading of 18 psi. If your line is before the map fooler then you would have a true reading. To me it sounds like your gauge is after the boost fooler.
