    i have an a3 1.8TQ its now on a revo stage 2 and i have fitted a boost gauge yesterday, took it out for a spin and foot to the floor it was showing as just over 20psi i would say around 22psi not to sure but this sounds alot to me for a standard turbo? or is this correct?

    its the AUQ engine code and i have been told its a KO3S but when fitting a forge intake pipe to the turbo i looked at it and it looks like a KO3 to me.

    That sounds about right on Stage 2.
