I went back and put a at the end of the opening sentence. The intended humor was initially lost on some but it came out later on.

But anyway .... Went out and did the 3rd gear test. You would all be proud of me .... I never went over 6k RPM. I know my engine internals thank me.

It appeared to me that boost dropped of sharply at 7 bar under an aggressive 3rd gear climb up the speedometer (according to the boost gauge with the tattletale). I am going to interpret that as a sign of a properly functioning wastegate.

The boost gauge in the tach was less helpful. It would go up to 1 bar on hard acceleration. The 935 gauge appears to be the 'go-to' gauge?

If I am running two guages, are they both going to work accurately? Or am I supposed to ignore one (the one in the tach)?
