    It's not in PSI.

    Doesn't it say on the face what the units are? The Pa is an SI unit (1 newton per square meter) but bar is not, so using hPa brings the numerical value to the equivalent of mbar. This means you're reading mbar when you're reading hPa.

    You can convert either to PSI but I don't and I won't bore you with it.

    Rather then just learning what the conversion is.

    The Pa is an SI unit. By definition, it's a standard unit.

    to the OP:


    The pressure unit that the stock boost gauge is in is mega pascals. (MPa)

    .1 MPa= 14.5 Psi





    You're welcome, the end.

    The stock boost gauges, on both of my WRX & STi, measures in MPa. "MPa" is Megapascals (The pascal unit is named after Blaise Pascal, the eminent French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher noted for his experiments with a barometer. The name pascal was adopted for the SI unit newton per square metre by the 14th CGPM in 1971.)

    The conversion of Mpa into psi is basically: .10 MPa = 14.5 psi (Actually it's more like 14.503770000000001 psi, but 14.5 is close enough.). Or you could always just go to one of the many conversion calculators on the web like this one.
