turbo vacuum
« on: 13:43, Thu 27 June 2013 »
Is there any way to judge what boost my turbo is at without actually driving it on the road and looking at gauge?
i.e  is the pressure the vacuum the gauge shows similar to what boost its at?

Thanks

The engine's vacuum will always stay the same when adjusting boost pressure as it's not part of the turbo system.

You can put a pump onto the actuator and see what pressure it opens the waste gate at. other than that, it's going to be a spin around the block,
