That's what I thought initially, but when the motor isn't running and
you get 1.0, it's pretty hard to be off very much at 1.3. I found out
that at 1.0 something is wrong, 1.1 something is wrong, 1.2 (4 psi)
something is wrong and finally 1.3 (12 psi) everything is working. I
didn't need third gear to see 1.3 either. You do need to be over 3000
rpm though. I had a bad wgfv hose, bad michelin man hose, bad wot switch
and a bad wot switch connector. the last one was tricky. You can check
your wot switch till the cows come home, but if the connector is bad, no

Michelin man? Take it off and flex it looking for cracks.

See note above. I have also heard that it must be less than 2 ohms at
the switch or 6 ohms at the ECU. You need a meter that can read that low
to check it.
