    0.5 bar O/B & 0.4 bar hold... Normal?

    Hey.

    I think I may have a boost leak somewhere, I am running a standard map with the mods listed in my signature.

    The turbo is fine and has no play in the shaft, no smoke etc.

    Is 0.4bar/6psi about right for a standard map? I am running over 211bhp at the moment, the car pulls alot better since the last RR as I now have a Milltek system.

    Any help would be appreciated, I am planning on going to Red.Dot next month once I get some VXR injectors so I want to make sure it's ok...

    From my Autogauge boost gauge. All the pipework is secure to the gauge etc.

    What would cause that low boost? The car still pulls like a train, more so then when it was RR'd at 211bhp...
