Right guys I baught myself an odb2 wifi adaptor and dash command for my iphone to try and see what power my s3 is running. After a couple of runs giving it all she had in 3rd and 4th I managed to get it readin max 203hp. 188lb-ft and max boost of 20psi!. And air flow rate 170.75gs.
Now i know these aren't the most accurate things but I have entered all correct PIDs, but max of 20psi seems way to high.
I am quite sure there are no leaks as I have repaired a few.
And I'm new to this engine and car so been getting to know it these last 6months.
Anybody got any tips or could help with logging that would be great.

ive got the torque app for my s3 and mine boosts to 21psi, and i think the airflow rate was roughtly the same as yours, (need to do it again) unsure if it is remapped, but would like to findout somehow, ive heard 12psi is standard

What bhp and lb-ft are you running? If mine was mapped I would of expected more power I was told it was standered and thaught to was. Will be checking all pipes tommorow night I think.

If it were overboosting you would be going into limp mode, if its not then I would say its mapped but sick... Check for leaks both hot and cold side of the turbo.
No fault codes?

are you actually sure its boosting to that?
check with a gauge to confirm "actual" and not r mis-reported torque app reading

I am not sure it's overboosting just assumed so because of the app. I know it's not very accurate. It's not going into limp mode and drives fine pulls well and no fault codes that the app can read. I have checked for leaks but I can check again or maybe get it smoke tested. Thanks for your help guys I was hoping to get up too you bill around July/august. Hopefully she's not mapped!

I wasn't going to fit a gauge but I guess I could. Would you recommend doing some logging first bill? Il have a look on the vcds map on here and see if anyone local could give me a hand.
