      Does anyone know what the boost pressure numbers are supposed to be on the turbos? VW has gone back to IHI Turbos (which are more dependable) but I don't know which one they're using.

      I've heard from a few sources that the numbers indicated on the 3 gauge pod are suspect and thought to be a bit high.

      The Eos, which shares the same 2.0 TSI engine and lists the same power specs, runs 13.1 psi.
