the factory boost gauges measures in MegaPascals, if you multiply that by 10 you get the equivalent of bar. 1 bar = 14.5 psi.

Ok, I think I'm still a little confused. What do you mean by 1 bar? What would the .10 be and why does it go all the way in the negative to -.15? Thanks for the help!

.1 would be like what my gauge reads on my STi. It means .1 MPa. Bar is a measure of atmospheric pressure, just another way to measure psi, same as MPa. So 1 bar of pressure equals 14.5 psi. And since the stock gauges is measured in MPa, you need to multiply whatever number you see by 10 to get the bar measurement. When the gauge reads negative that just means your car is in vacuum. All cars do that, it's just that turbo cars have the added bonus of boost pressure on the intake of the air
