I've just installed a boost gauge and was wondering what the normal pressures would be for a stock turbo?

If it's all stock than you will pry be seeing around 18 unless your have a chip than you will see higher. Can't really remember as I haven't been stock for a while!

If you do have a chip or get one, do yourself a big favor unless you want to be upgrading your turbo soon. Either watch your boost gauge and do not allow boost to ever go over 27 lbs or better yet if you plan to stay with the stock turbo get the Turbo Master mechanical waste gate actuator and set it to open at 27lbs. All the stock vacuum versions bleed boost off thru the whole curve.
