well, i dont know exactly, but i believe on gauges like that, because 1.0 is like 13.4 psi or something like that i believe, and i know these cars run lower than that stock.


somebody please correct me if i am wrong, but im pretty sure thats what i have seen people say.

i know 1.0 bar equals 14.7 psi. and i believe our 06 and 07's run like 9 or 10 psi stock. might be a slight boost leak. but the stock gauges from the dealerships arent that accurate

since 1 bar is almost 15lbs... then .5-.7 really isnt that bad, thats between 7.5-10.5psi... so if it runs at .7 then thats about what is should be stock, i assume.

spike is a rapid rise in boost that comes right back down.

creep is when the boost rises regulary but doesnt plane off and start tapering, it just keeps going. happens in the 06+ due to bad wastegate design and more air from the 2.5

02 rex is gone.

Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.
