[200q20v] Low boost (1.7) and Hesitation under load (4000 rpm+)

Please note:
The standard 200 20V have a 2.0 Bar boost sensor and
1.7 - 1.8 is normal readings for that.
The IA stage 3 and many other, have a 2.5 Bar boost sensor.
A 2 Bar boost sensor gives a electrical output signal to the ECU
(and the built in dash display) of 5.0 Voltage for 2 Bar of abs. boost.
A 2.5 bar gives a 5.0 Volt for 2.5 Bar abs
And a 3 Bar 5.0 Volt for 3.0 Bar abs. etc.
If the ECU is chipped with another boost sensor, the readout
have to be ree-calculated - or mount a mecanical gauge!
