I just read in the mag Car&Driver that the Turbo S Bettle has a Max of 11.6 psi. So the GTI has the same psi, right. That is lame...So I can only increase the pressure by a few lbs!? I personally think the 1.8T should be making like 220hp with that kind of PSI. What if my Focus had a 11.6max PSI? It would have like what? 250hp, because on a 8psi turbo, it has 190hp at the wheels. Just curious, since I'm thinking of a chip. The 2001 has a max of 8.4 or something, the 2002 has 11.6, the 2001 has 160hp vs 180 in the 2002. Thats a 20hp diff. So if I increase boost by another 3psi, to 14.6, then I should have about 200 hp at the motor, right?
