Strange Oil pressure reading...

So I installed my Glowshift Oil Pressure gauge and sensor, Im using the Glowshift oil Filter adapter plate and followed Platanofs instructions. While I was at it I also changed oil and at the moment running Mobil 1 15W50 Synthetic and wix oil filter, the car has 75900 miles on it and the gauge is reading 24psi at idle and 80 psi at 2000rpm..I was fine with the first figure of 24psi as platanof gets 20psi at idle...but 80psi is twice of what I read everywhere.....could any one contribute to me what PSI readings they get from their gauges if these readings cant possible be right? This is a 1999 Saab 9-5 SE with 2.3t engine Thanks.
