Boost gauge question

I am really wondering if my boost gauge is accurate. So here are my questions.

What does your boost gauge do when in park? Mine doesn't register ANY boost until redline then it'll read 5 psi.... thought that was odd.

cruising on the expressway @ 70mph it settles around 2-4 psi does that sound right? (that's empty btw)

And is there any way to test if it is accurate? Or do you think it is.

I have my w/g blocked and hit 10lb in park (with chip) and cruising at 65-70 i see no more that 5lb. on good flat ground. Nothing is wrong, my maximum boost is 29-30lb. Average peak is 27-28.

Are you saying all you see is 5 psi at redline? The rest of your post sounds normal.
Where do you have it hooked up at?

The DIY intake is just the stock airbox with the lid gone (didn't even come with the truck) and a big ol' airfilter from who knows what.
