    Still it's not a pair of trousers. You bought the car; you can't just take it back to the returns department

    Anyway I hit 17.5 psi on my 15 STi

    Doesn't matter if no one told you, the Owners Manual specifically says there is a 1,000mi Break-In period and not to rev above about 4,500. It also wants you to vary your speed a lot. You can get it up a little higher in the rev range after 600mi. Regardless though, if there's a problem with your car then there's a problem that needs to get fixed. I don't think you have much to worry about though. Highest mine ever got was 22.5, but I think it usually sticks around 18... I don't eye it too much tbh.

    I posted this on the 2015 wrx thread with no replies, but what is the boost gauge for? I'm no racer by any means, but have never seen a boost gauge on a turbo car until now. Are you supposed to watch it and shift at peak boost?

    I think it's best use is for preventative maintenance in an untuned daily driver. It can be a first indication of a boost leak in your engine bay. It's not used it to determine when to shift. It's really only helpful if you are tuning or tracking your car, otherwise it's just some bling.

    Basically boost gauges just display how much air the turbo is sending into the engine. So it lets you know if the turbo is "working" yet or not. It measures vacuum pressure so it'll read negative when idling since the turbo isn't being used then.

    It's a measure of how much air is being forced into the engine by the turbo. If you're stock then you can ignore it. But if the car doesn't feel right, it's the first thing I would watch.

    If you floor it and it only reads 6psi through the entire rpm range, then you've got a problem.

    Not "how much" air, it's the pressure above atmospheric. Volume and Pressure are different things.
