well when you floor it and the gauge goes up, thats how many pounds of boost youre pulling. lol

vacuuming isnt good.

idk what your knowledge of turbos are but it basically you wont start actually pulling boost unless you are over ~3k rpm (idk about the tc)

there is really no need to pull any boost in normal driving unless youre racing or passing. because boost=lower mpg.
