What is the normal boost a 159 tbi is supposed to give?

On the UK side of this forum people are saying they only get 1.2 bar. A friend of mine also gets 1.2 bar out of his car. Mine will pull to 1.2 bar any given sunday but depending on certain conditions, i get up to 1.4 bar easily. It will whip the needle around the dial to 1.4 bar within half a second from as low as 1750rpm all the way to 4000rpm where it slowly decreases to around 1.2 bar.

yep, 1.2 for me - maybe see 1.25 on occasion

+ limited to 0.8 in 1st and 2nd gear - although when the weather's hot it goes to 1.2
