Given the Falcon engine's large capacity, boost pressure is kept low at 6 psi ( 42kpa )to ensure it doesn't become a grenade at high revs. Low boost also minimises turbo lag and provides a strong surge of bottom end and mid-range torque. It certainly works: peak torque of 450Nm is produced from 2000-4500rpm ...

And re " I ran forscan on mine a few weeks back and got 112kpa )


112kpa = 16.2 psi ... :roll:

yeah I had read them awhile back. I know ba xr6t are about 5psi "stock" which don't add up to 112kpa.
