I tested the car finally after putting a new Forge CBV on. The car is holding 30 psi now for some reason. It was at 25psi before.

Because you were losing boost pressure. Now it's not.

That seems like an awful lot of boost. Is your car tuned to run that or is it going to be visited by Kool-aid man any day now?

It was tuned to run 25 psi but it's running pig rich at 30 psi. I'll probably readjust the boost back down.

I'm not sure why the vacuum is around 0 on the gauge. The car seems to run fine other than a high idle 1400 when warm. I can't adjust it out with idle adjustment on the throttlebody. Maybe I'm off a tooth somewhere. Any guesses?

I was wondering about the zero inches of vacuum thing. It stays at zero at idle, too?

Does it just idle high after driving it? Or will it idle up to 1400 just sitting there? Thinking speed sensor if it's the former.

Says 0 at idle, when cold it idles around 1000 then goes up to 1400 and stays. I'm going to hook up another boost/vac gauge directly to intake after the throttle plate to see if maybe I'm getting a false reading.

Where is your gauge hooked up now?

It's hooked up to the throttle body barb that points to the front of the car on a T that goes to the wastegate if I remember right. I'll have to take a look at it later to make sure I'm telling you that right.

I don't know the specifics of that particular TB, but it seems like maybe you've got it plugged into a ported vacuum barb. One that's slightly before the throttle plate and never sees vacuum.

It's ok, the hose to the gauge was being squeezed into the firewall. It's showing 18lbs of vac. The idle is still bit to high. I got the car set to 21 psi of boost now.
