Question New WG spring now seems too much?

Hi:
Little help please,


I got a new spring from Pelican ( 1 bar ) checked the sticker to make sore i got the right one. Noticed that the new spring was about 1.5 inches shorter.
Change it in the WG and reassembled (with trouble).
I'm now wondering if i got a 1.2 because it seems to build a lot of boost?
My needle goes past the one bar mark (guess 1.2) old spring was .6ish, but i don't want to destroy the motor/turbo.

Could i have installed the spring incorrectly or pinched the diaphragm?
Could it be the wrong spring?
Could the gauge be way atta wak?
Should i be listening (or feeling)for the "safety valve" to do its thing, whatever that is?

I'm kinda nervous about trying it or pushing it? Please make me feel better
P.S It goes Like STINK!


1989 930. speedo shows 100,000 miles but unsure if that is true.
