The factory 3.3L with very low compression ratio cannot run reliably past 0.8 Bar.

A compression ratio of 9.3:1 will greatly limit the boost, so @0.5, that sounds about right.

Are you doing anything to your clutch package to take up that additional Torque? The standard 5-Speed 915 tranny was too weak for a 245HP 1975-77 3.0L Turbo, hence the standard 4-speed on the 930 until much later, when they went to a 5-speed.

Good luck!
