    iad ur only getting 1.41 after a tune? I don’t feel so bad!
    Wonder if they go up over time? Mines not quite 1,500 ks yet and stock as a rock so it might go up???

    My GTS 2L is hitting 1.51/1.57 KPa on the stock gauges in SI/SI#... only difference from factory I can think of is I have the STI wheels, I run 98RON, doesn’t seem to matter if it’s day or night or temp for me... I would have thought night would tick a few more boost pascals but evidently not...

    Maybe it’s just an overseas name, the number is still 98

    Vortex is a brand, Ron is an index.

    Pretty much has been said, but as per nicodache’s link 98RON is Australian Fuel rating... some other countries use a different standard..

    Vortex can be 95 or 98 as it’s Caltex’s premium fuel.. same as BP ultimate and Shell V-power..

    All the numbers in Australia are RON... but other countries like ‘Merica (USA) use a different rating such as MON, AKI/PON...

    To be honest, not sure... driving excitedly that’s the only given! I just look at the max readout after I come back to reality... will try to set up a cam or get a passenger to keep an eye on it next time ;)

    The Needle bounces around like crazy ... It's not a nice Max boost pull like you'd imagine
