Hello you guys I had a quick question

I was curious if the car makes more than 320 hp

Would our gauge on our I drive peek to 320 and just stop there ?


I have jb4
Dp
I run e85
And exhaust on map5

And I have never seen the gauge go to full max 320

I get to 315 or so

Does that actually mean my car is not even at 320 hp

Or is the gauge not accurate

yeah it just measures your throttle/rpm/etc. and calculates a number. i think you can change it via coding as well so it shows more power at full load, but i can't remember if it's an MPSSK sports gauge or an //M sports gauge. i think it raises the max to 400, but then it'll show 400hp at full throttle even if you have no mods lol

Do they adjust the gauges when you get the MPPSK?

It won't recognize your tune. To vastly oversimplify things the tune tricks the car into thinking boost is lower than it actually is, for example, so the car adds extra boost to get to where it thinks it should be. In actuality it's then higher. The sensors (and gauges) won't show any of that.
