Default Utec reads boost high?

Ok, I've finally started to play with my utec and I've notice that the my avcr is reporting 1.19 bar, the utec is showing 19lbs and my boost guage is showing around 17lbs or so which would agree with the avcr. Anyone else notice that the utec reads boost high?

My utec also read higher than my boost gauge also. I was running the Defi bf gauge.

I have the stock guage. Which would you trust, the avcr, or the utec?

You need to set it to read gauge pressure, not absolute pressure.

That might fix other peoples problems if the utec is reading higher then the gauges, but for whiteknight the problem is with the map sensor(as far as I know). I don't think the map sensor was made to sense pressures which are so high.
