Geez, now I feel like I'm driving an '64 Impala. I thought these cars were always pretty good straight from the factory and they didn't come with an adjustable boost controller AFAIK.

Then why are people measuring significantly larger boost numbers with such small springs? That doesn't make sense to me. It seems like if you want a MAX boost of 1 BAR that's what spring you'd use, then you could use your controller to dial it back to .8 for around town and just messing around and turn it up to 1.0 BAR for an event or something like that. But the way I understand it, you shouldn't get more then the 1 BAR. If I'm way off with this statement, please enlighten me.
