    can you turn up boost yourself?

    my car ran 186.9 bhp at a recent rr day and the guy said it may be set to run low boost. It ran 225lb/ft which seems correct for the milltek catback i have but just wondering if turning the boost up is possible and if so where or how should i do it? The graph i got does not have a boost line, just torque and bhp

    Dont think you can mate, its all controled by the ecu. What turbo are you using? does the wastegate need adjusting?
