Boost gauge question

Thinking about adding a boost gauge somewhere around my dash (just for fun). I noticed most of them (other than those with a digital readout) seem to run on a scale of 0 psi to ~30psi+.

I have an SLP TVS2300 with the original pulley and tune (for now). I'm not sure how much boost that equates to, but I don't think it's a lot (on a scale of 30). Would be kinda lame to have a boost gauge that goes to 30psi and the level just hovers between 0 and 6. Does someone have an idea of how much boost a stock TVS2300 runs, or have a boost gauge on a similar setup and know the readouts?

Thanks!

I think having a 30 psi boost gauge only go to 6 is a lot cooler than having a supercharged car and no idea what boost it makes

From what I understand it's typically up to 6psi (hence my range from my original message), but wanted to see whether that was correct or if I was missing something. But thanks for your helpful opinion all the same...
