Default boost questions

i have a 95 mustang with a vortech v2 supercharger system. i just installed a cheap dragon gauge, and it gets -9 during idle. I drove it yesterday, and i had to almost redline to get the boost to register 3-4 psi. this is suppose to be set up 6-7psi. the sheave on the supercharger looks to be about 3.5" diameter.

Does this seem right?

ok thanks, wasnt aware of the boost area.

Interesting didnt even think of the tension. it seemed tight, but maybe not tight enough? i thought the tensioner keeps it tight?

thanks for the help!

Where in OK are you located? Shot in the dark, your kit would be at 6-7 psi at sea level. But some places in OK are around 3500 ft in elevation.
I ran into the same problem here in CO, a smaller pulley on my TVS fixed that problem.
