Is this amount of boost correct?

I just installed a boost guage on my powerstroke and am seeing 25psi max. This was when I set my DP on 140 and I have a boost fooler. I wasnt pulling anything just started off from a stop sign. I was going pretty hard on the petal. Is this right or should I be seeing more?

right before two push rods went this last time i was seeing about 18-23psi with the van turbo. the right foot can come into play here but id say thats about right.
