Come on, he was perfectly correct to say 1.4 bar boost.
'Boost' is by definition MAP - atmospheric.  Unfortunately,
the word boost is what is usually used incorrectly around here
and that is what should be corrected.

It's closer to 400 HP when the airflow becomes a problem.
I still wouldn't use a K&N though due to the unreliability
of the filtering.
