How long for boost?

Not that I am implying that anyone is lying but if there is several ways to measure boost,... this means that boost is relative to your system and can not be compare one car to another,... am I wrong

there is no contradiction - at very high speed there is significant "load" on the engine, due to aerodynamics, that when coupled with high enough RPM will cause the turbo to generate boost. But lazily cruising down the highway at 3000rpm you most likely will NOT see boost pressure in the manifold
