Average boost? **UPDATE**
Hi there, I'm new here. I have a '95 T-Bird SC, but, my girlfriend has a '98 Bonneville SSEi.
Now, being the performance type that I am, my g/f and I were riding around in her Bonneville today. I asked her to floor it so I could see how much boost she was making (my car stock makes about 8lbs), she did and her boost gauge hit about 3lbs of boost. AFter we climbed a little higher on the speedo, the gauge started to bounce. It hit about 5, then jumped to 8, and bounced back and fourth until she took her foot off (bouncing fast, not smooth).
Anyway, I'm curious if 3lbs is average for her car to make. I'm figuring, since she wants her car to be faster, for her birthday, I might get her a 5% or 10% OD pulley.
Anyway, so is 3lbs normal, or is there anything I can do to fix that up a bit?
