1988 944 Turbo Engine performance


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 turbo; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 108630;

I just purchased this car. Does not seem to have as much power as a friends identical car. Engine runs fine, no oil consumption. At 70-80 mph at WOT, boost gauge reads aprox. 1.5 bar. Is the boost gauge an indicator that the turbo is functioning? Does not have the surge that you would normally feel with a turbo. Vehicle reaches 100 mph easily. I have not checked fuel delivery yet, as I was hoping someone might tell me where to begin diagnosing.
