    boost gauge only showing 0.5 bar?

    Hello, just got round to fitting my boost gauge, on vacum it shows -0.7 bar and under throttle it goes up to 0.4/0.5 and sometimes 0.6

    this seems a little low compared to what i thought it would be is this right or do i have a leek somewhere?
    Thanks
    Tim

    Sounds about right then I think (been a while since I have seen a std car)... 150hp cars are around 7psi I believe... have you scanned for fault codes?
