Re: 1998 2000 turbo standard boost

Hi Phill I would be thinking round the 0.8bar boost for your car are you running 95unleaded fuel as this does knock the timing back in car and runs the car with less boost try the higher octane fuel way better for you car too that should raise the boost that bit more if you not running it already but if you are running higher octane like the super unleaded be thinking its somthing else cause 0.5bar seems a bit low boost for me.......................

If its a UK car then standard boost pressure is 0.8bar however as stiimpreza says if you are running lower quality fuel it might be making less. Obviously there could be other reasons (boost leak etc)
