    does anyone have a gauge in their car to monitor boost pressure,it would be intersting to see which tuners use which boost settings,my focus would peak at 1.2 bar (18 psi).

    Always fit a boost guage to my cars.
    Audi peaks at 12psi and hold about 10psi
    Fiesta used to peak at 17psi and drop to 15psi
    Escort peaked and held 25psi.
    Mates Fiesta peaked at 34psi can't keep the engine in the bay so it's been backed down. Well I say backed down but it's still 385bhp ATW :eek:
