    What should the standard boost be for a AJQ 180 bhp motor ??? i'm seeing around 0.6 BAR max but searching the forums this seems to be the same as a 150 bhp motor i thought it would have been a touch higher.... i'm sure someone must have the figs for standard engines knocking about...

    Yeah i'm getting around 0.8 Bar now after changing the bulb in the gauge which was catching on the mechanism inside ...... shame on the turbo though... would have been nice to have a KO3s
