What is the maximum turbo boost in a Cayenne Diesel?

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me what the maximum turbo boost (psi or bar) is in a stock Cayenne Diesel (which uses the VW 3.0 TDI engine)?  I am interested in the spec for a 2015 or 2016 model year vehicle (which have the same engine).


I've looked around, but cannot find this information.  I don't know why it is so hard to find, or maybe I am just not good at searching.


Also, is there some type of easy to use device that will let me see the boost level in real time with these vehicles?  I thought I heard about something you can attach to the vehicle's computer which lets you make a connection via Bluetooth, and use it with an app for a phone.


Thank you in advance for your reply.

From the 2013 Cayenne Diesel Tech Book...

"The Garret VTG turbocharger was developed to deal with “turbo lag”. A VTG turbocharger, which allows for boost pressures of up to 26 psi/1.8 bar (relative), is installed in the 3.0 l V6 TDI engine."
