Default what vacuum level does your stock boost gauge show at idle

Mine seems to be at 0.06 mpa at idle when warm with everything off, slightly less if I have the lights and A/C on so forth. Sound about right?

That sounds right on. My car likes to sit at 500mm/Hg at idle, which is approximately 0.066 Bar.

Good, thanks. I just put the gauge on yesterday and everything seems spot on. I also put on the SPT exhaust, which sounds fantastic. I love that boxer sound.

Ditto on the Boxer sound! How does the SPT setup sound compared to stock? Like, way louder or more subtle?

It is considerably louder than stock. Has a real nice sound, deep and not ricey. I haven't gotten it out on the highway yet, hopefully it doesn't drone.

It was kind of a pita to put on because I was really wedged under the car trying to get at the front part of the mid-pipe. I had the back jacked up as high as my floor jack will go and onto jack stands (although I had to let it down a bit to get it on jackstands, unfortunately- I needed about 1/4 inch more to get to the next notch).

That meant that the front of the midpipe was hardly lifted. I was jammed under the thing, couldn't slide in from the side- had to slide down from the back to the front on the creeper until I was basically wedged under the floorpan. Other than access, however, it was a pretty easy job. Getting the old exhaust out of the hangers can be a struggle.

Would have been easier if I had another set of jack stands to get all four wheels off the ground.

Yes, I mean its -, as in vacuum.

Got to log some mixed driving including highway time with the SPT cat-back today on the way to work. Its pretty loud, has a deep sound. Not ricey. Its maybe a little louder than I'd prefer at idle or low RPM's. Sounds good when accelerating. It does seem to drone a little on the highway in the wagon, but its not real bad.
