if the power is good....i would say you have a leak in the hose that runs to your boost gauge.....

its common not to get them to seal right....make sure everything is sealed up tight there first before worrying about it..

What are you doing to get 9 psi? Are you driving down the road or just reving it in the drive way? I see no tuner in your sig, and with a 1.15 housing those numbers are not HORABLE... You should see about 12-14psi with a stock OBS

I am suprized you were able to get that much just reving it... You have to drive it to build boost. Turbo needs a load on it to build boost.

I would rev it to 1,500 and hold for about 15 seconds then hit it to 3,000
