    Esseesse boosts to around 1.2/1.3 peak and will hold 1 bar boost.  :thumb:

    oVerboost: That´s sounds a bit high! But at the same time, it matches the reading on my boost gauge pretty good. Mine moves up even further, to about 1.4bar wich i thought was very high. So at first i thought i might have to reconnect my meter hose, to another location on the intake manifold. Have my T-piece / hose connected to the "fuel pressure regulator" vacuum hose at the moment. But should work there i believe.. 

    Also getting a "squeeking" / rattling metal noise from the meter itself, when boosting, which is odd. I mean sinse it´s a boost gauge  :-\

    Anyways. With the boost already this high, i don´t think i´ll be adjusting the preload on my waste gate, which was the plan, after i got the gauge. Rather check the factory nut on the vacuum rod and se that it hasn´t been altered / preloaded already.  Then next year the plan is to buy the TMC chip tuning box.  :thumb:

    Thank´s

    Oh wait, I was basing it on the 500 didn't see you had a Punto (and you said Multiair) sorry lol.

    Yours should boost a little higher being a Punto.  :thumb:
