Turbo Question

554 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  IDRN
I just got a 2002 GTI 1.8T, and was wondering what the boost in lbs. is on the stock engine. I also wanna know what a good P.S.I. would be, to up the turbo to, and is there anything else needed to go higher in boost.

Stock is probably about 10-11 psi average on the 2002, you can get a chip and go up to peaks of 18-20 and hold about 16 through most of the rev band, then it has to back off as you get past 5K rpm.
