    bkd boost pressures

    Had two overboost faults today reset with Bluetooth obd and torque app for Android
    I have read people reading boost pressures of up to 3 bar but mine stops boosting at
    1.5 bars according to the display on the torque App

    Can any one confirm the standard unmapped boost pressures?

    Thanks Jack

    1.5 bar still a tad high. About 0.85 bar is typical norm.
    Overboost sometimes symptomatic of a sticky turbo vanes.
    For a boost curve map, check on an ECU remappers website.
