    I dont have a gauge at all. I would like to add one. I have no way of telling how much its pushing.

    Put a pressure sender in the intake piping and hook it to a gauge.

    Doesn’t matter where? Closer to turbo better?

    Cold side, directly in head or pipe at air inlet to head is best.

    On the head just behind the intake there is a 1/4NPT port where most install a fitting for a boost gauge, makes it quick and simple to install one.
