Where is BAR Measured?

Got and installed the factory InterCooler hose from Linda.  My dash display now
reads 1.8 BAR if I have my foot on it, whereas with the straight silicone hose
I only showed 1.7 as a high.  HOWEVER, there is a NOTICEABLE performance drop
with the stock hose on there! The car doesn't get up and go as well as it did
with the other hose.  If I'm reading more presure now, how come the
acceleration isn't as good?  I'm baffled...

87 5000CS TQ
84 5000S (2,000 miles away and a mile high)
90 80 (sibling's mode of transportation I get lynched into working on)
