Les,

My boost setting with a factory wastegate is 12.5 PSI (.8 bar). The gauge goes to 20 PSI (~1.4 bar). That's so far above where I want it, that I don't need to know that the motor will make 3 bar unregulated.

Doesn't look like having a 2 bar gauge did Serge any good, either...

Serge, was the overboost switch disconnected? Or did it build boost so fast it overshot anyway? Were you looking at the road and not the gauge?

(not currently running an overboost switch, but I'm a little more twitchy about that now than I have been...)
