This is what my boost gauge reads when the car is running........
There should be underpressure (can be relatively high amount too) when the car is idling. So I think thats okay, as long as meter moves over to the boost section when accelerating
righty o then..
i have just take the coupe for a wee blast along the motorway and have the following figures:
sitting ideling boost reads -20 PSi ish.
flooring it it hits around 13 - 15 PSi.
settles down to hold at about 10 PSi.
slowing down it reads - 27 PSi.
and sitting ideling again reads -20 PSi ish...
so is this correct?
Yes sounds about right. When its on idle the car is sucking air giving a negitive pressure, when your driving it the turbo creates a positive pressure..... looks about right for a standard one unless your running a remap

yeah its running a remap but its a pretty CRap one! was on car when i got it.. superchips one.. think we figured out that it was mapped on old ECU settings meaning the 25BHP gain i was to get actually only took it to around 206ish.... think it was more to just smooth the lumps a bit.. runs really nice, when i dont have daft things happening.
Sounds and looks about right. Mine overboosts to about 18 then settles at about 14 but have a decent map on there from chippeduk.
you dancer! i have just found where the leek in the vacume pipe is.. that VX said wasnt there!!!!! its been bugging the crap out of me for week!
the origional T piece that was fitted with DV before i got it has a Feckin tiny wee crack in it.. just took the bit out to clean it and the dirt went in the crack... new bit can be got from any car shop this correct!??
Possibly, or try that B&Q round the corner from you, they should do some fittings near the off the roll rope, cord and tube or look in the garden section for Hoselock Irrigation stuffOriginally Posted by Glasgow_Stu
was just thinking that! is the T bit the same as the ones in washers? if so off to scrappys for some "spare" parts i go!
wonder if that would have had something to do with the DV not being as loud as others!
