From what I have been reading up, I understand that the boost variance for the N55 is between .7-11psi depending on weather, altitude and other factors. This would mean that the boost is set at max 11psi from the factory correct? and that say on a hot day, it would run on higher boost(11psi) to compensate for the power drop from the warm weather, am I correct?
Also is the boost variance fixed from .7-11psi for all the N55 blocks in the X6, 335, F13 etc etc??
I have my boost set at +4 in my jb3 stage 1 and I know that max boost it comes stock is at 11psi so am I correct to say that this would mean my variance would be between 11-15psi?
