I know my s60 t5 is suppose to make 15psi from the literature I have read on the topic and for some reason I don't go past 10 psi. The best answer I could find was that it was a dealer thing and sometimes factory to limit the boost on the automatics.
It is auto. I need to research that, buy a few spare transes, and figure out a way around it.
