If I were actually hitting 24 psi, then the car should be in limp mode (the initial reason why I switched to an ewg). So I hooked up my accessport and started monitoring boost through that. Accessport was telling me 18.5-18.6psi every pull, while the boost gauge was telling me 19.5-21psi. So now I came to the conclusion that my boost gauge if screwed up. I was having issues with it before to where it would be reading like 10psi more than it actually was. It'd say I was hitting 5psi while the car was idling. Then a few minutes later, it'd go back to "normal". I will be giving Prosport a call tomorrow to see what they say about the issue.
You've been using uncalibrated measuring equipment this entire time? Sadface.
