Question Boost Leak???

So I Installed my Boost gauge last night in my 2000 9-3se. I know the SE is suppose to be running around 14psi but today when i went to drive, it was maxing out at 12psi.
Do you Think its a boost leak or is it normal?

14psi is only if all the variables are aligned, like the moon, stars, octane, state of tune, etc.. Count yourself lucky if you reach 14psi and sustain it on a stock car. My stock viggen in Ca with 91 barely reached 13. But that is not to say that your car can't reach 14 if everything is perfect.

the T5 people have you confused! T7 is airmass request, and thus if you have dense, cool air, you may only see 10 psi because the engine is meeting its torque request from its maps.
Go to high altitude and you'll likely see more than 14 psi.
