    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Default Boost gauge on 1.9CDTI

    Fitted my boosty gauge and got a max reading of 22PSI, some what higher than I expected to be honnest.

    Anyone know what a standard 150PS kicks out?

    Going to put the box on now and drive back to work, I don't know whether the boost will be increased or not but I'll sure have fun finding out.

    The common rail engines do boost alot more than the traditional engines. High compression etc.

    22psi still sounds an awful lot. I'm getting 14psi with my remap. Do the diesels really run that high?

    Where did you tap off for the reading Nutron? I only ask 'cos at the RR day the other day the guys couldn't find a place to tap off on either the 1.9 or 3.0 diesels.

    not actually knowing the exact figures, I would guess that 22PSI is about right - compression in a petrol turbo is say 8:1, wheres a TD its about 18:1. The turbo will need to generate far more boost than a petrol one to cope with the compression.
    Take a look at the size of TD turbo - the 3.0V6 ones can be seen best - they are huge in comparision to a petrol one.

    Nutron, is there any chance you could do a How 2 on this, as I fancy fitting one to my 1.9 CDTi as well

    Cheers

    Indeed a Diesel engine will like more PSI. A turbo was almost made to go on a Diesel engine, like wise a Super Charger was almost made to go on a Petrol!

    However Boost guage is a bit Escourt Cosworth Like i.e. "Chavvey"

    Well, that'll make me a bit Chavvy then!

    I fitted a boost gauge as I wanted to see what my turbo was doing - after I had lost boost a couple of times (finally traced to a faulty boost pressure sensor). It depends on the sort of gauge and housing as to whether it looks 'chavvy'. I still have only a temporary mount until I find the style that I want - but I definitely ruled out the A pillar style as I personally hate them and think it would look daft in a Signum/Vectra C.

    Here's what I fitted........





    When I find the housing that I like (I've seen them for a Scooby - fit neatly in the corner by the windscreen) I'll tidy it all up.
