I'm confused.  When you say 1.1 - 1.2 BAR, that's including atmospheric
pressure, right?  If that's true, then that means you're only getting
1.5 - 3 PSI of stock boost.  This seems WAY too low.  If, on the other hand,
you meant 1.1 - 1.2 BAR above 1 atmosphere, this translates to 16.2 - 17.6
PSI.  This seems WAY too high for a stock boost level.  What gives?
