    It may spike at times slightly higher. I wouldnt worry unless it goes a fair bit over.

    Get a remap though then you will get the gauge to go higher.

    Where they upload some code onto your ECU which will adjust the fuel and boost control and etc which gives you much more power 35+ BHP

    You'll find that peak boost is well before the redline (and is quite literally a brief peak).

    The higher the revs, the more air your engine is using, so your turbos can't keep up with peak boost.
