    i hope so otherwise your turbo will spool up about 3 times running that much boost. recorded peak boost on my gauge is 1.82 bar which equates to about 26psi

    2.5 bar is 36 psi
    either your guage is wrong or your turbo is running way too much boost.
    where have you plumbed the boost guage into?
