    New 08 STi boost question

    Hey guys i'm new to the forum and just bought a brand new 08 STi. I was curious as to whether anybody has had experience with different STis coming from the factory with different factory boost pressures. I know i read a motor trend (or road and track) article about how they had a 335i that was pushing like 3psi more than it was supposed to.

    I only ask because mine doesn't seem to have as much oomph as some of the other ones i've driven. It only has 300 miles so will it get better as the break in period goes on? I've read about how the rings will seat ect ect...

    Can the dealer see what the factory boost is preset or is there a way i can check myself?
