The gauge is probably calibrated in "bars". 1 Bar = 100 kilopascals (kPa). 1 pound (pound per square inch or psi) of pressure = 6.895 kPa.
So the maximum reading of 1.5 bars (150 kPa) converts to 21.75 psi.
Check with hka to be sure it's graduated in bars.

weindan has got it right. hks does a lot of its stuff in kpas because the rest of the world uses the metric system and we stupid americans can't accept that it's better. my suggestion, don't get something unless you can get it in psi.

Speed limits don't apply to AWD.
