Customer Question

Hello! In my s60 2002mod i have chip that makes it somewhere around 230-240hp. The thing i am wodering about is: on my boost gauge it shows -0.65bar at idle and 0.7bar max. Isnt this a bit low? If im using Volvo Vida Dice it spikes around 1.9-2.0bar witch i think is a bit too much.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! What you're seeing is correct. .65 bar is 19.2" of vacuum, which is what you'll see on a healthy engine at idle. 2 bar equals about 29 PSI of boost, which isn't out of the question, especially if the engine has been modified.
