    The pressure is set by the ECU.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    IIRC the ECU will put your car into limp mode above 12psi. So no higher than that.

    Although the ECU is meant to control the pressure so upping it manually may not do the engine any good.

    you'll need stand alone management or anotherr fuelling control device to sort the fuelling out before you can run a boost controller.

    or get a remap mate - easiest way and safest way of upping the boost without messing around ur self

    unless of course youve already taken these measures - would help if u said so though

    my advice would be courtenay sport or Regal - my preference would be CS

    Ive had terrible experiences with a certain big name Vauxhall tuner - some have good reports.

    Most will say go for the one nearest u in case theres any comeback issues.

    But seeing as you asked - Ive given my opinion

    One thing I would advise though is do as much physical mods as u can then leave the remap for the very end

    Ive done most if not all the physical mods i want to do and may not even bother with a remap - 230bhp on standard boost is more than enough for me in real terms.
