Default Overboost Protection

Ok, so i am trying to figure out how the overboost protection works. I want to set it up so i get a fuel cut at about 13 psi? Will this be 90KPA or 190KPA.

Does this part of the software include atmospheric pressure or not? because atmospheric KPA is around 96kpa.

Thanks

Online Conversion - Pressure Conversion

I believe it'd be 90KPA, which is 13.xxx psi.

the correct answer is open up configurator, go to your project, open settings, and under kPa uncheck the box. Then open your msq and type in 13psi.
