    What mods do you have and are you tune? Im assuming your in a bugeye by your name. Your boost will drop after hitting max. It will naturally taper down then come back up. You do have a slightly larger drop than i notice on my car but I am also Stage 2 protuned so that affects it somewhat. (Which is why i asked your mods)

    sounds about right. But being that i was only stock for about a week its kind of hard to remember. I would say as long as the car feels alright and you dont have any other major concerns your fine. If your really worried, find a local tuner and ask if those numbers sound about right. Or ask some subbie owners in your area about it as altitude will also affect those things.

    I don't consider that right. I would search for "boost hunting".


    My guess is that you just bought the car and someone removed a manual boost controller and didn't plumb things back right. Verify the restricter pill is in place etc.
