Re.Boost gauge

Ive now sorted the installation of this boost gauge but the car only produces 0.5bar of boost but my mates sti produces 1.2bar,ive tapped into the pipe that feeds the pressure exchange solenoid valve to recieve the signal. Do i need to tap somewhere closer to the turbo outlet :?

Theres no faults being reported on the ecu.

Cheers for any :ideao:

My boost gauge pipe goes onto the inlet manifold. Sounds like your car is in safe mode if its only producing 0.5 bar. I'd try and move your pipe to the inlet, and do an ecu reset
