    a3 1.8t boost

    hi peeps, just fitted a boost gauge to my a3 1.8t. took it out for a spin and it boosts up to around 9 psi but the faster i got the boost needle starts to dropp. is this normal? i have had a look for a leak but nothing stands out to me.
    any thoughts?
    cheers

    Thats normal, the boost should fall off around 5k revs as the turbo is actualy quite small
