    sounds like it has been tuned/messed with. You should only hit 13.5 in 4th and 5th. What PSI does it boost in 4th and 5th now?

    why should it only boost 13.5 in 4th and 5th? I think it goes up way past 15 psi in fourth and fifth. I got the car from an 65 year old doctor who has owned it since it was brandnew. he had the car fax so I knew it was legit

    from factory max boost is 13.5, they tuned for fuel consumption and all that stuff we hate. thats y max boost only come on in high gears, more load is possibly the reason, who knows.
