    As above, this ties in to my other post to do with my slight boost problem.

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-...-boost-problem-after-fitting-badger5-kit.html

    Prawn now has me convinced I have other problems lol... I have a 210 S3 APY engine code and my boost gauge says it over-boosts to around 12psi and drops to about 9psi where it settles. The car does feel quick, and it does feel as though it is running full power and I know that it can do 147mph (proven on the German autobahns).

    So do I have a problem, or could it be the boost gauge I have that is pants? I have a Prosport boost gauge, and it wasn't "cheap" cost about £35 off ebay. What do you guys think?

    Standard is 0.8 BAR
    You might fet a slight spike eith the intake pipe. But all sounds normal to me
