after my test fit and drive of my new jetex, (before my tip arrives) i saw that i was only hitting around 7psi!!!!! WTF
before it was peaking at around 8.5ish
so is it now highlighting a problem or is it just the ecu backing off a bit???? and will it sort itself out without remapping??
any thoughts anyone????
cheers:confused:

Changing the airfilter shouldnt alter how much boost its running at, just to make it breath easier! spin up a bit quicker, my thoughts are the ambient temp???, was it much warmer the day you fitted the filter? was quite warm yesterday!!!! Just my thoughts could be wrong!

I would look for a small boost leak! check everything is tight. or put the car back to stock and see if it goes back up???

will do, just a thought, with the bigger air mass now, could it be the oem tip failing and restricting it a little??

Maybe one of the pipes come loose when the removed the air box.

When i changed the filter on mine things didn't seem right to me , so i did a bit of reading (as always) and a in a thread i read that if you change anything , then you should do a throttle body alignment in vag (The manual method didn't seem to work), so i did that and everything seemed perfect.
