That was as far * mine would go before the "Bug" bit

A drop in pulley size will get it over in the corner

Is that yours Hans? That'* a canadian car. Yours should be -10 to +10 for US cars.

Other than the scale (kpa) it'* normal for a stock pulley.

For some reason mine tops out all the way with stock pulley.

That'* a sign of either boost stacking caused by poor flow through the engine, or a bad or tired MAP sensor. 8-9 psi max is normal for a stock pulley.

Yes that'* normal for stock boost. 7-8 psi for the Series III
When I bumped my pulley to 3.4" it raised to the start of the orange.
The 3.2" takes it to 70(10 psi) and the 3.0" a bit beyond 70.

Is there any way I can test the map sensor?
