Hey guys,

hopefully its nothing, but i noticed my boost guage reading a little strange today on the way home from work. Now, I could be mistaken, but i though it usually reads up close to half at idle. Its reading -9 right now, sitting in park idling. It goes into the + when i get on it, but only to about -5ish just putting around or keeping a steady 65 mph.

Also, all other guages are reading normal. Temp, oil pressure, etc. Going down the highway if i let off the gas the guage quickly pegs to -10. Mods are cai, 3" downpipe with high flow cat, catback, prj wires, autolite 605s. All thats been on there for around a year or more, the exhaust is newer.

Is this wrong, or am i imagining things? If its wrong, what are the possible causes?

Readin on my glowshift 7 color black boost gauge read -10 at idle but I have a glowshift 7 color white boost gauge and since it doesnt have negative it reads zero so you should be fine
