Default overboost not working

what would cause over boost not to work?

i have it set to 150 kpa while while i mess with my EBC, but i still see it pass it with no fuel cut at all
i even tried to set it to 50 and 100, and that does not work either

Well I think you are both right. It must depend on how the MS is configured, because mine is in KPa, I set it using KPa values, and it works when it should.

It is a setting in configurator you newbs. You can either check or uncheck the box for "Display all gauges in KPa. (Otherwise some in PSI)"

If his is reading kpa he obviously has the box checked which happens to be default.
