With no load on the engine (park/nuetral) you won't see the gauge move. Even cruising around in over drive until you get up to about 2000 rpms your boost is going to have a very low reading.

i have a stock 96er (4x4, 4spd auto), at idle i have no boost reading. in neutral at full throttle, i might see 3psi. at 65 mph 2000 rpm in 4th gear, i see an average of 5 psi with an average EGT of 700.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
