As long as your carb has been jetted for higher boost 1bar boost will be fine, does the boost gauge read vacuum as well as + boost ??

iam not to worried as car is running fine and ive had no problems and i had it serviced last week and had the tappets sorted as they were tapping a bit as engine has settled down after rebuild,also had oil change done and had mobil 1 motorsport oil put in and it ticks over nicely now with no tappet noice.
