its actuator pressure Dan, IIRC. I personally thought it was higher than that. But guess not.

Im only interested cause im looking at the transplant myself at the moment. Oh and im gonna keep popping questions into people as i want to learn about these things and stop just thinking "what??"

Dan - basically it is what the actuator is set to. This is the part of the turbo that controls the bypass valve or 'Wastegate' of exhaust gasses past the turbine housing, therefore controlling boost. The longer the wastegate stays shut for when spooling up (turbo getting faster) the higher the boost. If it opens early, then low boost. The actuator is set to a psi as standard just incase the boost controller (or BMV in rover's case) fails.

Don't see how you can get 197bhp at 6psi when a standard engine is modulated to run from 6-11psi and wont see 197bhp until 11psi. Is this not a standard setup or did they simply quote you wrong?

where is this standard engine thing from?? it says mildly tweeked in the article, and it is mildly tweeked its got the breathing mods and a few little bits on a reconditioned engine, all i can say is i saw it on the rollers, and i got the sheet, i knew this would happen, it happened with my old engine too when i posted the RR read out.

Sorry mate im not doubting your power just interested. You hear so many differing things about the t series turbo you never know whats what. I know nothing about engines and am just learnign so i have no room to question anyone.

Your rims are really nice by the way.

Wind your neck back in I only asked if the engine was standard or not.

it was only at actuator pressure while it ran it, its at 12 psi now, hence 215 bhp
:)

So by doubling the boost pressure you have only gained 18bhp? Something seems amiss here.
