    Your car is a diesel turbo right?!!

    Well, so I have been informed they are a waste of time on diesel cars unless you are running really high boost.
    You would be best off fitting a boost gauge and then getting a remap done to up the boost pressure and fuelling...

    If you want the PTSch...sounds, you could buy a CD of them and play it while driving

    they're plumbed into the induction pipework somewhere and tell you what pressure the turbo is making...no real intrinsic value to you as a driver,but nice to see your blower is blowing.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
