I’ve taken the Black  Mariah this way before, and written about it here.  
This time, however, I  didn’t “hit it” in first, second, but in third I stuck my 
foot into it hard,  and watched the speed and digital readout climb.  The 
digital readout  rolled right past 2.4 and settled at 2.5 bar.   
Fourth gear was the  same:  right up to 2.5 bar and stayed there until the 
upcoming left hand  sweeper which is blind, caused me to drop things back to 
something closer to  “not automatic jail time”.  

Once clear on the  next straight section, I got it into fifth, and was easily 
able to see 2.4  bar, but I didn’t have much time to see if it would pull to 
2.5 bar in  fifth.  The horizon comes quickly in fifth gear, and with that 
much  boost. 
So it seems to be  very consistent.  I do not know if the digital readout is 
accurate, but  everything in the dash is pretty much rock steady, except for 
the occasional  speedometer bounce, which is not there most of the  time. 

 I'd be questioning something for a big reason. I question the ability  of a 
K24 to maintain 2.5 bar when feeding a 20v above 5500rpm....especially if  the 
car is equipped with a stock downpipe and  intercooler.
