    Good evening all!

    I have recently fitted a boost gauge to my 2000 S3 APY 210bhp and was a little disapointed with the amount of boost it's producing...

    On full chat it over-boosts to just over 10 psi, then drops down to about 9. Is this normal or do I have a problem?

    The car has not been re-mapped. It has a green cotton panel filter, forge 008 Diverter valve and that's pretty much it.

    Anyone have any ideas? :)

    Cheers in advance!

    Ben

    Thats about rightish pal. Ive got a none remapped s3 and my boosts to about 14 psi when booting it, normaly it boosts to 10/11 psi and holds it to redline.

    Btw mines far from standard just not remapped :)

    Ohhh ok, just seemed a little low to me :) I'm aiming for stage 2 because my mate has got a stage 2 LCR and it's running almost 300bhp and boosts to 21 psi B)
