Question New to Turbos and I just put in a boost gauge, now I have a question

This may be a newbie type question, but this is my first turbo car and I just put in an Autometer boost gauge.

I noticed that in first gear, the gauge will very rarely get more than 6psi from a semi aggressive launch, 10-12 on a more aggressive launch, and I hit 14 the other day from a hard launch. Sometimes with a part throtle, normal launch I barley get any boost.

I have the 3/16th connector mod.

Could someone help me understand this behaior? Is it a fiirst gear saving thing?
