Sounds about right for a North American spec un-modified WX motor.  That's
why we like to mod our cars ;-)

'84 Tornado Red Urquattro
'91 v8 quattro 5-Speed (not exactly stock) :-)

Subject: [urq] Low boost or what?

Hi there,

I am back from France (French drivers are REAL crazy…) and I brought a VDO
turbo gauge (-1 to +1.5 bar) for Brady’s car. In his car, the gauge shows
0.85 bar of boost. We believe his car was modded in the past. Tried the same
gauge in my car (should be stock) : 0.7 bar max.

Question: is this normal for my car? Or do I have a boost leak somewhere?
What is the normal boost pressure for a WX like mine?



83 urQ, shiny (thanks Mother’s and 3 hours of my time) but maybe a little
