Hi All

Quick question that I dont seem to be able to find the answer to.

Thanks for the reply... interesting, I thought mine was standard, but the additional boost gauge hits and holds about 0.9 bar by around 5000rpm. I don't have a boost controller, so assuming thats an ECU remap is it ???

1 bar of boost equates too 14.7 psi. So 0.9 bar is roughly standard. Its no ecu re-map, just a well maintained machine!

I Was Told You Can Run Safe On 1.2 , 1 , .9 And After Plenty Of Research I Found It Safe To Run At 1bar, I Did Run Mine At 1.4 By Accident And It Was Nice Lol But Wouldnt Recomend It With Out Upgrades

1bar Is Safe Ive Been Running Mine On It For 6 Months With No Dramas

It would be a good idea to have a spare set of turbos if you're running higher boost.

That way, if the exhaust blades part company your car won't be off the road for too long (assuming they do the decent thing and exit out of the exhaust).

I'd recommend these:

Yeah, sorry for the thread hijack/spam. :sorry:

You could get these and then have them converted to steelies? :cheers:

Back on-topic I thought standard boost was around 0.8 bar, maximum 'safe' boost 1 bar (although I guess this could be rev dependent).

Thanks all

I love the way my thread on what was standard boost ran away to who's got the most boost lol

Anyway, from all this, I think I am right in saying that my GTR running 0.95 to 1 bar boost is running slightly more than standard but still in the safe zone.

Cheers
