1.8T Boost Questions
« on: May 11, 2005, 09:18:31 pm »
Hi All,

Does anyone know what boost level the 1.8T generates in its factory configuration ?

Anyone with experiences installing a manual boost tap and increasing the boost level.. any idea of an acceptable level with the standard tune ?

from what i heard boost taps on these are a big no no..
i cant remember who said that to me cos i wanted to do the same on my GTI to hope fully save gas..
(cy i think u told me that, an sumthing to do with lambdas)

Boost levels Standard i believe are around 9psi peak then again

if you have a S3 thatll probably be different

Boost tap = bad.

IF you want more boost, the only safe way is a remap (chip).

Cheers guys, that rules out my idea of a cheap boost increase... better just save up for the replacement ECU then.
