Maybe you are one of the top Audi technical experts, I don't know, but if so
you should know better than to confuse the newbees with a careless use of
terms, thus generating erroneous statements.

MAP is the abbrevation for Manifold Absolute Pressure, not atmospheric.  The
generally accepted meaning of "Boost" relates to atmospheric pressure, thus
it is a gauge pressure measaurement, over and above atmospheric pressure.  A
NA engine operates at zero boost.  1.4 Bar boost would be equivilent to 2.4
Bar MAP at sea level.
