My car from the factory never boosted more than 1.4 bar boost. There have been some heavy speculation and in fighting which I don't want to go into right now concerning this. Even with the 1.4 peak boost I managed 267whp with only a Supersprint turbo back exhaust while monitoring the boost all the way...peak is 1.4 on my GQV and it max out at 4500-5000rpm and comes in at 2500rpm in N mode...we cannot dyno in D mode.
After my remap we only increased boost throughout the rev range and not touching peak boost or overboost...we are now starting boost just under 2000rpm and starts fading off after 5500rpm when doing rolling road dyno's with eyes firmly on boost gauge(3x different boost gagues) and 1.4 bar is reached very early...just over 3000rpm continuing to 5500rpm in D...currently running 284bhp reliably since 12000km...car is now on 55800km
