    Mines standard though didn't read yours was mapped!

    Don't know what it is in bar or weather mines okay or not but boosts up to 16psi and holds for a split second before dropping down to 10psi under acceleration rising again after 5000rpm up to 12psi

    That just sounds like overboost? It goes up for like 5 seconds in 3rd upwards. Helps with overtaking.

    Someone who knows more will be along eventually.
    I'm glad I'm not judgemental like all of you smug, superficial idiots.

    Didn't think the car had an overboost if it's been mapped?
