New to the V and the V board. I'm curious, at WOT, how high should the boost guage read? 1/2...3/4...pegged out? Lastly, what PSI is the reading?

Thanks

I'm at 7200 ft and my boost gauge only goes slightly past the 2nd line. Which is about 7 psi.

Mine was near 12 in the upper gears at WOT.

Mine was near 12 in the upper gears at WOT.

At what elevation. I feel that my boost is way low, but I was told it's the elevation.

I believe average is about the 3rd line, which is about 9 lbs, & the lines are 3 lb increments. That would be without any external compensation factors, altitude, etc.

That gauge doesn't read right so I wouldn't pay it much mind.

14psi at 100degF @1100ft. Will know how accurate this week while on the dyno.

Just under the 4th (12 PSI) line, so pretty much in line with the ~11.5 PSI that was data logged on the dyno (D3 9" lower pulley, stock upper).
