Boost, No Gauge?

My boost gauge has not arrived yet, so is there any way to check to see if I am getting boost with out a gauge in place?

Open your waste gate line, compare to closed. Won't get an accurate reading, but sounds like you just want to know if you're getting any boost at all. Should be checking your boost levels and afrs with some sort of gauge, overboost and lean mix usually means $$$.

Yes, I just want to find out if I am getting any boost at all.
I am new to this, so not sure what you mean by opening the wastegate line. I have two TIAL wastegates and I am not sure if they are working properly either.
