Boost Gauge fitment

Hey all.

ive got an adaptor sorted to read boost, an a gauge from an old car.
thing is i dont think the gauge reads high enough for the 1.9 16v, 30psi/2bar

what is standard boost pressure? and also an approx. mapped pressure?

I think standard boost pressure will be 19-21 psi that you will see on a gauge max std map. Boxed I used to see upto 26psi, remapped anywhere 21-25psi depending on mapper/reliability
Boost map sensor is 3 bar absolute or 29psi on a boost gauge so I'm guesing you won't go higher than that , over 25psi larger turbo required anyway longterm.
