Mystery solved!

Tonight I disconnected the WG pressure hose from the WG and hooked it
to a manual pressure gauge. At 2 BAR boost (== 3 ATA) I got fuel

I re-connected the WG via a T-pipe and took it for another spin. The
WG opened at .7 BAR boost (== 1.7 ATA) which is what was indicated on
the computer and which is equal to the spring I got with the power

I could easily get addicted to the power at 3 ATA! 2.5 ATA seems
pretty decent also, which is what I've decided on for now.

Anyone has a 2.5 BAR spring for sale, or know where I can get one?
