1 bar = 14.7 psi

That is all.

Except for the fact that it's 14.5 psi, not 14.7 ....I think Defi is kg/cm^2, which is a unit so similar to bar that most people refer to it as such.

So just read every 0.1 on your gauge as about 1.5 psi.

The "published" max is 13.5 but your levels will vary depending on several factors (climate, weather, altitude, gauge accuracy, etc).

Will it also depend on the mods you have your car? My friend told me that if you have mods it will raise the boost.

Depending on the modifications......yes. However, a simple statement that "having mods will raise the boost" isn't necessarily true.

Cool thanks for the help Kean. That is good to know. I hope that my boost gauge is reading it right.
