recently got my car tuned and the data log and boost bank gauges show a peak of 31 psi?? ik these engines can’t handle anything over 25psi. am i reading it wrong or what’s going on? i’ll upload a data log
Yeah, that is psia "absolute pressure" which includes atmospheric pressure...as mentioned: 14.7 psi @ sea level...goes lower the higher elevation you are, say ~12.2 psi @ 5k ASL or 10.1 psi @ 10k ASL...basically it is the weight of the air.
What we typically see as 'boost' is psig "gauge pressure" and doesn't account for atmospheric pressure.
