I see a lot of numbers tossed around, but what exactly are the stock boost levels on this car, I know it tapers off, but what are the readings from full boost to taper at what rpms?

I spike to 19-20psi on full throttle and then it settles at 16psi until around 4500 rpm when it cuts boost to around 13psi so it can make max power at 5700rpm.

seems like many cars see different boost levels. Should be 14-15 until it tapers off above 5500 or so.

It varies from day to day, tank to tank on my car apparently :huh:

On a good day typically - 17-18 psi spike with a drop to a nominal 14-15 psi until 4500 rpm then it tapers to about 13 psi until it runs out of breath @ 5700 rpm. :yesnod:

But on my current take of gas with some Outlaw octane booster - 16 psi spike with a drop to 13-15 psi until about 5000 rpm. :irate:
