Boost comes in hard at 3600rpm (20.5psi), and smoothly tapers off to a normal 10.3psi @ 6880rpm
Now, heres my proof the k03 is only efficient enough for roughly 10-11psi at redline, wheres everyone else's at that show 14+psi at 6500+rpm.
Thoughts??

Re: Smooth as Silk. APR 3rd gear boost log (Silver_1.8T)

And btw, the "lag" you see before 3600rpm is exactly that. Try rolling in 3rd around 25-30mph and stop the gas. Youll see how the ECU is requisting boost as soon as the gas is hit, but given the low rpms, even the tiny k03 cant make that kinda boost that quickly.

And heres another run, only i believe this was a 4th gear pull.
1.5 BAR

And again, this run was upto 6400rpm...must have run out of road doing 100+mph. So, seeing the 15psi at 6400rpm is rare, but you can also tell its on its downfall as well, in route to a 11psi redline or thereabout.
