First off, is it actually 1.7bar, or just what the needle in the middle is saying?

Since running my Innovate boost gauge, that actually takes a pressure reading from the vacuum line under the engine cover, I've noticed how inaccurate the standard gauge was. My OEM gauge would normally read 1.6bar, ish. Innovate rarely reads above 1.25 bar.

A genuine 1.7bar sounds quite high! Few places i've read online suggest 1.4 is max (unless that's just in standard form)

As said. Dnt rely to much on the oem boost gauge. Hitting 1.7 bar of boost in standard internals will eventually blow the ring lands. The red spring isnt suitable as boost may end up being a bit more violent. If I was you I'd phone your local tuner. Ask them on what they would recommend
