No, I heard that boost is limited in each gear until 4th gear. Like 8psi 1st, 10 psi 2nd, etc.WaSaabiPSI said:I believe 1st and 2nd are limited to 5-9lbs and 3rd-5th is 15lbs. Can I ask Why? All gauges are gonna be a little off from the next, so it's pretty hard to get an exact reading, unless you were using a digital boost gauge. If your interested in a gauge PM me. I have a Autometer and and off brand one that I'm not using, they both work just fine.
It's to limit power. When it's cold, the air is very dense and the car will make too much power for the autobox to reliably handle. With T7, they limited boost to air-mass/combustion, so you automatically get less boost when the air is colder.PMI said:Adrian - why is the boost on the B204 Auto temperature dependent? Is the ecu programmed to do that, only on the auto transmission??
I've seen the graphs before, just never took a close look at the auto trans graph. So if I read this correctly, with the auto transmission, the boost is not just lower, but temperature limited, but with the manual, it is not... (?)Adrian W said:It's to limit power.

It might be more than a different wastegate. It could have a whole different exhaust housing, like a higher flow one or something. All I know is the whole turbo is listed different in the EPC ... not JUST the wastegate.lowbudgethero said:In 1999 the se HOT model i believe had a t25 with a differnent wastegate
The turbo for the HOT 93s after that year are td04s
