Converting MAP sensor readings to Boost levels

The MAP sensor records absolute pressures, and the boost gauge reads pressures relative to atmospheric, so in order to interpret the MAP sensor readings in terms of boost you need to convert the MAP reading to PSI and then subtract atmospheric (c. 14.7 PSI) to get the boost level. This table does this conversion for the area of interest.
