Mine aren't (pic attached) and I have noticed the same boost numbers as you. About a year ago it was 19 to 21, and now it's only 17 or 18. I also threw a CEL for some code I don't remember and was limited to 10psi until I cleared it. Once I have the money and time to install a better aftermarket intercooler I'm hopeful it'll go back to 20 and the random CEL will stop, as confirmed by a few older threads I found a while back.
can you please update the photo to point to where you think there is a problem? I am not seeing a difference...
