Stock boost?

I was wondering if anyone knows the stock boost for a 99 9-3, I have the 185HP version (only for the next week )

Thanks

well what are you rplans, there are some important things you should know. you may only raise boost via mbc to 15 psi on the stock ecu. i suggest a boost guage to help you tune the mbc. you may want to list your intended mods here, chances are it can be done for less.

I'm just wondering as to the boost as the car comes form the factory. I'm not interested in raising it yet. I will be getting an ECU for that later. So I just want to know the stock numbers.

Thanks

eh, people say different things, it costs a small amount of money for an mbc, and is a very popular power maker, stock its somehting like 7 or 8 psi iirc

It usually fluctuates between 7 and 9 depending on the car. The bpc's aren't all too consistent.

I consistently saw 15 on my 95 (edit** the CSE that I no longer own), but that had a 3" JT turbo-back and a K&N on it. Easiest way to find out is get yourself a gauge.
