    Sustained or peak?

    Getting really confused here, when everyone mentioned they are say running at 16psi of boost, is this sustained or peak/spike?

    peak, if they are honest. but a lot of us tell the taper when going for specifics online. Usually they say 18 psi peak and 16 psi at redline for example.
