flashed stage 1 boost question

I just flashed stage 1 91 octane. In 5th gear on the highway I hit about 1.02-1.03 on my spt boost gauge flooring it. The map notes call for 13.5 psi. Well 1.02 calculated is 14.8 psi . Am I over boosting?

am i converting the numbers tight?? The needle of the boost gauge goes just past the .1 mark on the gauge. im pretty sure that the .1 equals 14.5 psi. Man i need a new boost gauge. but any way, its getting close to 15 psi and the notes call for 13.5. Should i adjust the WG or let it learn a little?

wrxman420 is more helpful than not
The stock boost gauge is known to be a little unaccurate. You should be fine with the boost you are at now.
