I'm in the process of installing a boost gauge on my 2.5T in preparation for 'training' for a new TCV but also to see the impact of Stage 1 PPC when that arrives. Is anyone familiar with the boost levels that are normal or typical on the 2.5Ts? I understand it's a 'low pressure' turbo, but what would be a normal range for this setup?

Thanks bp. I got the boost gauge installed today and the boost levels are exactly as you described. At light throttle accelerations, I see like 5 PSI but then past about 1/2 throttle and 3K RPM jumps it's into the 8-10 range. <p>I really like you Air Vent gauge idea, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> but will need to keep my full cold air flow for the massive heat we have down here...

Yea no problem man. And thanks for thumbs up on the vent pod. But, I'm not trying to change your opinion or anything but, there is actually still a very good amount of air that gets blown through the vent. I can feel the air blowing pretty good when I'm driving and the A/C on full. I'll wait for the others who I made a pod for to recieve and I will ask them their opinion on how much air they feel.

Got some new boost readings with the EST Stage 1 tune! The boost starts off at about 4-5 as low as about 1600 RPM or so and climbs to 10-12 quickly at anything over about 2200 or so. 14-15 PSI peaks are there whenever pushing the and gas pedal a little harder past about 4K RPM. THe difference is quite amazing!
