Re: Boost pressure

I wouldn't advise just winding the boost up in this method...


I learnt from experience 1x melted piston and scored block later...

To turn the boost up you really need other suitable mods...

What have you done so far?

With my replacement engine it overboosts to around 0.9bar though....
