That is all the CTS is capable of showing because the map sensor it gets the information from through the ODB II port is a 3 bar sensor. If you want to see anything higher you need a mechanical boost gauge.

I can read over 30 psi on my dashboss using the map sensor. This was also being verified with my mechanical boost gauge.

The map sensor is a 3 bar sensor. 1 bar = 14.7psi. Sea level = 1 Bar so Zero boost on the gauge is about 1 bar on the sensor. That leaves 2 bar for boost = 2x14.7 = 29.4. Allowing for a fudge factor the most you will see reliably is 29-30 PSI.
