it holds it well stu and dont make no where near that pressure
if you have a 1.5 bar actuator, and you are not reaching 1.5 bar, then you effectively have no boost control, the actuator will always keep the wastegate closed

if you are not reaching 1.5 bar i'd guess you have a boost leak, and in time your turbo will fail. If you are reaching 1.5 bar, then it will be your engine that fails

Your car as standard should be peaking at 1.0 bar max, probably more like 0.9 bar

doesn't sound good, might be worth getting a trained eye to have a look over it for you

If you are going to be working on, and modding turbo's, you could really do with a boost guage to tell you whats going on

Either way, be very wary of putting too much boost through an engine, especially a 4 engine, as you could end up looking for a new engine too :(
