Default Boost issue or not??

Going home from work yesterday getting onto the highway I punched it and saw that my boost gauge ( mechanical autometer) read out close to 20psi.....I immediatley got out of it and poop'd home driving like granny. I have the car set for 17psi and that was the first time it has done question I am running a 2.3 1st gen whipple and the way I see it there are 2 options either the gauge took a dump or something went south with the blower.....from what I understand there are no purge valves just a boost bypass that bleeds off the boost between shifts? Any thoughts vaccum sits right at -20 so there does not appear to be any engine issues...

if you havent changed anything with the cars set up its prolly the gauge, the only things that ive seen that will make a supercharged car show more boost is cooler temps, or adding back pressure to the exhaust
