I'm no turbo expert by any means, my last turbo was a 1984 Chrysler New Yorker lol. But about time I get into it a little deeper here.

Anyways, I've never really ran with my PV3 on the dash. This past weekend I ran with it displaying telemetry and noticed with the hammer down 100% my peak boost was 15 psi. And would only blip into 15 psi for a split second. Held around 14+ psi at WOT.

I'm running the mildest canned tune on the PV3 which is a stock boost tune. Never got around to getting a vacuum gauge or played with crack pressure and other canned tunes yet.

Should my boost not be at like 18 psi on a stock 2020 RR? I don't think there are any boost leaks.

Just my crack pressure needs to be adjusted? Normal? Or???

The temp that day was just above freezing, like 35-40° F. So pretty chilly.

Fuel was about a month old. Machine sat for a few weeks while the shocks were getting done.

If that helps...

you can log the stock tune
copy the stock tune and then re-name it to .djt
then flash it
it will be exactly as stock

your generic tune may not be a rr tune

As in I can not log the stock tune currently because it is not .djt? I know I can't get telemetry off the stock tune, so I'm assuming you are saying copy it into a format that I can get telemetry from the stock tune?

I'm not sure why you're saying I should do that? What is my goal here? Then what?

Very green and new to these subjects like I said.

load the stock rr tune to see what it has for max boost. then you will know if the tune is the problem or something else

Ok thanks man I will try that.

Copy tune and change file type so that it will give telemetry/logging ability correct? As in stock tune can not in its current file type?

Just to be clear sorry lol... You're knowledge is 1000 times what mine is. So you probably take a lot of this for granted...

you will have the stock tune on the pv3
the pv3 requires the stock tune to work
yes just re- name the .stk to .djt

This car was parked for the winter. So never got into dealing with this yet.

Anyways, still wondering if anyone knows what the boost should be on a 2020 RR 195hp?

The highest I hit is 15.6 PSI. Still haven't loaded the stock tune again to see what I get with that. But the car has more power with the canned tune so I doubt I'm going to get more boost with the stock tune.

But either way, still wanting to know what boost I should be seeing.

The only info I can find is from EVO's website which says 18 psi stock.

Also seen a dyno test on a stock 195 RR from Vivid I think it was. They got 23 psi allegedly on an un-tuned stick 195. Like...what lol??? That don't sound right...

Anybody?

18 PSI is likely the theoretical boost at standard atmospheric conditions. Take into account sensor accuracy which asks the ECM for boost and your altitude, temp, etc 15.6 is probably accurate.

Cool. Thanks man.

I will try the stock tune again like @skidoochris said. And will likely try a Whalen tune as well soon when I get my ass in gear. Probably ask Whalen what I should expect stock as well. I'm not at any crazy altitude where I am.

The car isn't slow but feels like it maybe should have a little more power maybe. But that's likely the clutch I suspect.
