    What boost should i be getting?

    Hi,

    My recently purchased '02 MK4 Astra SRI Turbo is reading 10psi of boost on the pillar mounted gauge fitted by the previous owner.

    Just wondered if this is what i should be getting?

    Cheers
    Gavin

    If it has a standard map, that is about right

    Thanks Shane, I was just curious as to what it should be running as standard.

    Just while were on the subject of boost levels my car has a few mods lower intercooler 2 1/2 cat back air boxs and so on also a remapped ecu just like to know what boost in psi does 3rd gear tend to hold.On a flat piece of road it holds 11 psi but if going up a hill it will hold more like 13 to 14 psi im thinking its load related am i alone here?
