Subject: 9000 2.3 turbo question


I'm considering buying this car, it's a '91 200hp version, fully loaded. How much should the turbo boost gauge indicate under full load? On this car it it briefly visits the red, and then falls back into, say, 1/2 to 2/3 into the orange zone, when I hit the throttle. I did another test too: Third gear, 3200 rpm, full throttle, holding it back with left foot braking. Turbo gauge shows perhaps 30% into the orange only. Is this correct? I suspect not. MM
