    Hi everyone ive just fitted a turbo boost gauge to my audi s3 210bhp that's on a 2001 (Y) and was wondering what psi it should be boosting on

    Thank You.

    Sorry, should be about 14psi...your low figure could be down to the maf possibly...a friend was getting lower boost figures with his S3 and it turned out to be the maf...

    If your not getting any eras thrown up and your sure you have no boost leaks then I don't know...your boost is in psi and not bar is it, don't mean to be funny but if it's 1.0bar then it's spot on...

    Whose doing the map for you ? If it were me as your not getting any fault codes I'd go for it, they should see if any problems make themselves known...maybe just what she needs...

    What does your boost pressure in VAG-COM read? Log block 115 which will give you requested versus actual boost. This will tell you if your boost gauge is accurate.

    mine's a 210 ona '99 and only runs about 10-11 psi does feel slightly sluggish but put that down to my last S3 being remapped, will have to have a look at it now.

    DV, Actuator weak maybe?

    See what the tuners say when its mapped

    P.S. They're all slow pre-remap!
