Running a 0.9bar spring will never allow you to go less than 0.9bar....its just the way the wastegate works with your DOD installed correctly.

Exactly.

As to his questions re: higher boost, the answer is no...free flowing headers and mufflers don't in and of themselves result in boost beyond the spring setting of the WG....but may result in boost spikes on occasion, depending on a lot of things. I would start with a .6 spring if the intention is to use the DOD, set it for .8bar boost, and if it spikes or creeps beyond that then simply dial it down.
