Wasnt the 1.45 bar answer good enough?

On my td04 iwas running 1.25 bar and was getting 250 bhp, uk turbo. Got a vf30 to go in it now and i'm going to crank that up to around 1.3 bar.

I would not go above what Mr Freeze has quoted. However I believe that Mr Freeze had his set up by PAVLO (a demon at scooby tuning).

I would recommend a remap to go with the higher boost to ensure all is in harmony

if your asking about the std ECU, then the max. is around 1.0BAR....................fuel cut becomes active just above this point, although each car reacts slightly differently
