PSI in relation to an NA is the amount of air in the tires. When it pertaining to a turbo it is the boost that a turbo is running.

it just means pounds per square inch but it can refer to pressure in ANYTHING, turbo boost pressure, fuel pressure, tire pressure, oil pressure, etc.

That's misleading. As far as the tires are concerned, the pressure is not the amount of air that is in the tires, but the force that the air exerts over the inside area of the tire.

As far an ANYTHING is concerned PSI ALWAYS refers to the pressure of the gas/fluid over the surface area of the container, not just for tires.

No kidding, really?!? :eek: But if you're talking about a different fluid and a different container, then you're not looking at the force the air is exerting on the inside area of the tire now are you? Hence, "As far as the tires are concerned."

:rolleyes:
