    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elegance

    Engine : 2.0T

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 59.4K,

    Default boost gauges.

    i have just fitted a boost gauge to my 2.0DTI.
    the problem im having is that when i open the throttle the boost pressure rises to 20psi but as the revs increase the boost pressure lowers to around a steady 13-15psi.
    does anyone have anything similar happening and is it normal??
    cheers, mick.

    the large boost pipe that is at the front of the engine bay, at the top.
    it goes into the top inlet just above the EGR if that makes sense. let me know if you have any trouble. i will try and find a picture.

    if this link works, its the pipe at the bottom right hand corner, large diameter black pipe.

    just to let you know though, i have taken my boost gauge off now as it kept going into limp mode due to leaks around the boost gauge tap off.
