TZ,

Mines a MY97 UK Turbo 2000 and runs at 1.0 - 1.1 Bar of Boost!!! Mantle's Trefeglwys (my local Subaru dealer) couldn't belive it when they checked my car over on it's first service and were asking me if I have modified it in any way to cause the results (at the time only had forge recirc, panel filter and center de-cat and backbox).

Running on Optimax may cause the ECU to "allow" it to run at a slightly higher boost level (cos of the possibility of less detonation).

I wouldn't worry too much, it will just cause you to use more fuel!!!

Most de-catted Scoobs overboost a few lbs. No back pressure and turbo spools up much quicker. which gives you overboost. Its only a spike really and the ECU will eventually pull the boost back down if you hold full throttle long enough. As long as the overboost does not hit fuel cut off its all OK.

1.1 is about right Ash

Decat and cold weather will be giving you a nice level of boost - one question though does the boost hold at 1.1 or does it drop off slightly as the revs climb towards the redline ?

Glad you like the gauge btw
