wow. I've had the car for a year(8500 miles). I never had a boost gauge until yesterday. I also added a CBE and Cobb Short Ram. I took it out to test the accuracy of the gauges(defi). At first i was weirded out. I was like WTF? i was hitting around half of the STi's full boost(7.5 or so of the full 14.5 psi). Then i just mashed on the gas pedal, and shifted a lot quicker to the next gear, and mashed it again, shifted, and so on. I hit fulll boost, the gauge hit the target boost mark to a tee. I know I have hit it before. However, I have come to the realization that I rarely push the car, i rarely mash on the gas. I should do it more often. I guess I never realized that i can hit the gas down so much more than i do....oh well...stupid story. Just wanted to share it.
