It's a good question/comment and either the EAS boost measurement is incorrect or my car is an anomoly.

Funny thing is that their boost measurements appears to be correct for every other 625 kit they have dyno'd and measured boost for. You can see the boost graph above...actually not even 6psi...maybe 5.5 to 5.75 before it spikes up when the throttle is closed.

I wish I had a good answer.
