Let me get this straight...

You're using a car to calibrate a boost guage?  I'm not gonna get into all
thepossible ways for you to get a +/- 4PSI variance between "tests"...but
suffice to say there are many.

No offense intended...but aren't you one of the people who's asking about
"boost creap" all the time?  Do you figure that your car is really *that*
consistent, boost-wise?  It's taken me quite a while to get the Pinto that
consistent...I know that the truck and the SVO's aren't.
