If so, that is why your boost level dropped as you are now getting no overboost which is a good thing.
You think so? I know that most people say the stock guage is worthless but I swear to you that since I put in the Tial WG, its been topping out pretty much exactly at .8 bar (which is the spring I ordered the WG with). I was thinking the gauge must be fairly accurate then. Since the muffler and WG dump install, its topping out somewhere between .6 and .8 bar on the gauge. I'm not even sure if the WG is opening. To be honest, I was expecting more noise from the open dump pipe. I think all I am hearing is the new muffler, but its hard to say for sure. Maybe I need to stuff a banana up the dump pipe and then see if it blows out under boost to check the WG operation
