    im pretty sure stock boost is 11.6 psi so i mean if you car seems fast then i doubt you are lossin boost. because only running on 5psi will make your car a whole hell of a lot slower. your best bet is to look at the gauge. any leaks? bad connections?

    Are you saying that the OEM boost gauge sweeps to .03MPa?

    The gauge says 0 |||| .05 |||| .1 |||| .15 MPa (not Psi)
    .07 MPa = 11 Psi

    Target Boost is 11.x in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. 1st gear is only like 8 psi.

    I figured you were interpreting MPa as PSI.

    FTR you can source a gauge that reads in PSI and simply swap out the stocker from Omori meter. If you are gonna keep the stock pod take a look at the 45mm gauges.

    www.j-spectuning.com has them

    I have one and love it.
