Did a log before I cleaned up the carbon and saw that commanded boost was to be 1000 hPa and actual was 972. That is only .5 psi than commanded, so probably within spec. Also saw 603 nm engine torque on one of my full throttle acceleration runs, which converts to 444 ft lbs.

Not sure how it calculates engine torque (probably through the transmission), but there is the option to measure engine torque in the log through VCDS.

So HP = torque x rpm /5252

When torque is in ftlbs


Sounds like an onboard dyno 😄
