boost gauge at 20psi, not a boost spike!

1.42kg/cm2 * 14.22 = 20.2 PSI ;)

baseline dyno

192/245 at the crank basic run
with stock airbox and afterwards, found a small cut hose before the DV,
possible small boost leak! This proves that the stock airbox is a large restriction if you do a lot more
than just "chip"!!
