Can somebody please tell me where the needle should be sitting on the boost gauge in the dash?
Should it ever go into the red section of the dial? Mine never has even when driven hard. It only goes to the very edge of the middle section.
Does this sound normal? I understand that the gauge in the dash is not exactly accurate but I would like to know if everything is as it should be.

They do vary quite a bit - I'm not sure where they should go to, but my old 2.3 Carlsson went at least half way into the red. I'd guess that the needle should at least get just into the red section.

It doesn't sound too far off the norm. As Kev says, "standard" cars normally make it in to the broken orange/red area.

If it hasn't been dirven hard and you want to unleash a bit more performance potential, it's probably worth undertaking an adaptation run.

The procedure can be found here on BillJ's 9000 site.
