Boost gauge question

I want to make sure my boost gauge is working correctly and that my turbo is working right as well.

It seems to flutter and then it comes up to a steady boost reading. Normal?

Going down the road with nothing in tow and on the flat ground it reads zero. Normal?

MY EGT's are around 600 at cruise speed. Up to 800 on a grade of with a little more throttle.

Trans temp 150ish.

no they dont boost that high normally between 0 and 7 psi. 7 if going up a hill. the only time that they are going to get above ten is if you are getting on the throttle a good bit.
