    It basically activates automatically is 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear when the throttle has been held down for more than 5 seconds and increases the peak boost from about 15psi to about 17. So just gives you that extra bit of wind behind you

            Is it running standard map? Do you have a down pipe, If so you may need to adjust the actuator slightly.

                      boost can never be to low aslong as you still make the power i would love to have the same power running 1.2 or even 1.0 bar!

                          The boost gauge fitted, should be read as indication purposes only, they are all innacurate by a far margin of error, and im not talking a few percent either

                            I relise that mate, but when it always shows 1.2bar then a few times is shows 1.4bar then it must be boosting more?

                              I believe that could be due to the software overboost.
