    Un-Official Mechanical Boost Gauge Peak/Sustained Boost Registry

    Now that we have some real mechanical boost gauge options out there, I'd like to start a thread that simply logs people's peak and sustained boost levels that they are seeing, along with any hardware/software mods that would directly contribute to those numbers and the turbo model (1446, 1448, or upgraded X)

    Example:


    21 Peak
    19 Sustained
    Turbo: 1446
    HW Mods: CAI, BOV, WGA, FMIC, Check Valve Mod, etc.
    SW: MM ECM Setting #2


    Hoping this will get us some benchmarking real-world boost levels, and also help tell the story on how much boost is leaked by the stock SMIC plumbing, the evac system, etc. And then also be able to see how the ECU reacts to HW/SW mods, too. I'd kick us off, but haven't installed my ATM BG yet!

    19.7 Peak
    19.7 Sustained ( i think at least)
    Turbo: 1446
    HW Mods: HCI CAI, Check Valve Mod, RRM Hi Flow DP (wrapped with titanium heat wrap)
    Data System: Torque Pro
    Gear used: 3rd and 4th
    Octane: 92
    Elevation: Unknown but the ocean is only about 3 miles away


    Now i did see sustained PSI of 19.9 when I was catless with peaks in the 20.?? range maybe even higher. I have not tried in 1st or second gear while logging with ESC off and may see a higher PSI.

    I added data system used for logging and what gear the pull was in.
