whats your boost gage at when when cruising

i have been battling some air leaks and one thing i have thought was not right is my boost gauge would be pegged at -.5bar even at speeds of 80-90.

i think i may have finally fixed my air leaks.
usually when i drive about 65, the boost gauge is pegged at -.5bar. when it has run good, it has been just above that. well this morning at a steady 65, it was about -.4 or -.45bar.
i have just replaced my WG which had a LOT of play in the valve guide and i have also been messing with my DV.
i just pulled it out of recirculate mode and vented it to atmosphere. i dont see how the latter would help, but the WG would. i know i was losing boost through it.
