Digital is more accurate but get a 3bar one and you should be fine.

This may be a stupid question but can you turn up the boost on a standard 2.2 ? if so how and where and also will it lead to any problems?

www.celtictuning.co.uk is one place There are a few others. A remap is the only way to properly and easily/safely up the boost!

Years ago when I had my 306 D turbo, it was all the rage to do the screw mod of justice! No real ECU to the engine so you'd up the fuelling with the maximum fuel screw inside the fuel pump and then wind out the wastegate arm!

Back in those days you had to do the fuelling first to get more boost and then alter the turbo slightly. The fuel pump boost compensator would do the rest!

Much cheaper and to be honest a much more reliable engine/clutch/gearbox than anything modern I've had but think of the massive plus with a remap over this :

You don't even have to get your hands dirty!

You wont be running over 30psi mate. With stage 2 celtic 22psi max maybe overboost to 25ish.

cheers mate ... just trying to find out which pipe to tie in to now ... thinking its the 2" pipe next to the battery but confused as some say its the other side of the intercooler ... bearing in mind the gauge is more cosmetic than anything else
