stuck at 10lbs

Bought my car last week and noticed that i was just making 10lbs of

boost... So i call my dealership and they tell me "GM is having problems

with some cars not making the 12.5lb's that there supposed to" and GM is

going to have a recall in the next few weeks.


Just wanted to know if anyone else has had this same problem.


P.S. Didn't matter if it was 68 or 100 degrees still only made 10lbs

You car has to have a sensor to tell the ECM how much boost you're making, why not let the BCM use it too to display a readout?

Yeah, bizo, you might wanna look into the lemon law, my buddy got a brand new SRT-4 after about 12K miles, so you shouldnt have much of a problem if you're having repetitive problems. Hopefully if you can get another SS then the new one would be great!
