    Default Turbo boost pressure

    How much boost is too much.
    For pajero Gen2 2.8
    At max boost it reads 0.7 bar not sure how accurate the meter is
    I'm thinking it is a bit high

    What do you think. Should I find a way to get it down a bit

    1996 2.8....hmmm - Did your model have an Intercooler fitted as original ? If so, 0.7Bar does not sound to high...

    I believe the max boost pressure for a standard 2.8 Gen2 Pajero is around 14PSI which equates to around 0.9bar.

    0.7bar sounds fine on a standard engine.

    0.7 bar is low. 16PSI = 1 bar

    Ok. I will leave as is then. It only runs max boost in extreme cases anyway which is not often

    Hoeveel boost is te veel?
    Wat word beskou as baie boost?

    Nog n vragie: veronderstel brandstof beskikbaarheid is nie n probleem, beteken dit dan n 2 liter teen 1 bar is gelyk aan n 3 liter non turbo, en n 2 liter by 1.5 bar is gelyk aan n 4 liter non turbo?
    Vrywaring: Niks wat ek hier kwyt raak moet hoegenaamd as feite beskou word nie.
