I am at around 9 psi of vacuum, I actually read off Kpa. I'm between 56-65 (having a moment of dyslexia) any way, its around 9 pounds.
I DONT have a pill
My lines are not the right mm they are all 4mm.

I'm almost positive the lines and pill are the reason, If I could have a seniors input on this, that would be great.
If I am right, I'll just shoot over to the auto parts store and see if I can correct it for ten bucks or so.

P.S. I'm hitting stock boost now with my vf30 and supporting mods. seems like it should at least be around 18 or so????

You NEED a friggin tune Randy. Stock BCS or that MBC still ?

Wouldn't hurt to have the correct inside diameter lines IMHO. ~20-25 in-hg vac is about where you should be warmed up at normal Oper Temp
