Just had a major repair done: new turbocharger, new AMM (uncorrect readings), new intercooler (small leak under pressure).

When I drive on the motorway, I only read 0,2/0,4 bar pressure, when driving 60/80 mph, constantly cruising. I'm suspecting the turbo pressure sensor. Full load goes to 1,5 bar.

What are your readings at this speed (159 1.9jtd 16v)?

Thats about right if you are just cruising at 60 in 6th, the engine is only just over tick over without much load.

My car with a remap is about the same and boosts to 1.5 bar, before the remap the max was 1 bar.

cruising should generate very little pressure at all, so sounds about right to me, although I can't check right now. Boost pressure only really increases under load, so unless you're accelerating hard you won't get much pressure use at all.

at 70mph, it's about 0.6-0.7 bar.

1 bar max says it's broken!
