    More likely is that its either a set of rollers that dont read correctly, or a boost gauge that doesnt, LOL

    You can get an operation to fix that these days :)

    Great video Craig - especially the second one. What is the orange warning light for on both runs?

    No it shouldnt.

    Probably some sort of fairly transient and not particuarly important issue though like a bit too much det or a slight boost overswing.

    He should still get it checked and sorted though of course!

    Boost outer limit.... Common on chipped C20 LET's

    My gauge was Autometer. And the Rollers boost is recorded using a data logger.
