    Default Boost gauge fitted..

    Fitted my maptun boost gauge tonight, didn't bother taking pictures are i need to tidy up the mount etc as the midges were horrendous!

    Only driven a couple of miles to test it was working, the max boost i'm getting is 0.7-0.8 bar which i assume is pretty much standard boost pressures? The car is still running the remap from Thorneys/superchips as i never bothered taking it off, so the remap never took right enough..

    What are your boost pressures on your mapped cars guys?

    Big thanks to Ian-Highlander for a quick bit of assistance during the fitting process

    Not that much is it mate... Mine hits 10psi on occasion, so i assume thats a bit overboost??

    Do remapped 2.0turbos not hit about the 14.5 psi mark??

    Larger injectors and stage 3 software is kinda cheating!

    Hmm, better save some pennies and get a decent map!
