Ohhhhhh, I got it off an '87 Gran National :P
But really, I'm reporting what the Manifold ABSOLUTE Pressure sensor says whan I have my scanner hooked up to my car because I don't have a boost gauge. 36 inHg is indeed 17.7 psi, but to get boost you have to subtract 14.7 psi of atmospheric pressure to get 3 psi of boost. I should have 8 psi of boost: that'* 14.7 psi (atm) + 8 psi (boost) = 22.7 psi total which is 46 inHg (what I should be seeing, but I'm not).
So, somewhere along the line I'm missing 5 psi (and it'* not making me happy). Maybe (I can imagine) I got the engine that flows so well that the blower is only able to make 3 psi of boost (probable not, though).
36 inHg = 3 psi boost (now)
46 inHg = 8 psi boost (healthy blower)
