Bob, does your car loose power in 1st gear?

Your car should be powerful enough to not feel a drop off in 1st and probably 2nd gear. I would suspect a problem if you feel the power dropping off in the lower gears.

As for the stock boost discrepancy, it could be in your gauge. Stock boost gauges are not the most accurate. It could also be the springs. They may be 20+ years old or one may have been replaced by a 0.8bar somewhere along the way.
