Re: Boost question
Boost guages are accurate enough. ebxr8240 is on the right track with load to an extent. It's more to do with flow rates, in that at high revs you'll have more flow through the engine and in different gears you'll have different flow as well due to torque etc etc.
At least that's my theory, I'm no physicist. You can creep up the revs and not make any boost at all at times so that's my evidence. Hehe.
