This is commonly used in older VW and Audi MSA12 ECUs (i.e. 1996-1999 MK3 Golf/Jetta/Bora that have stock MAP sensors
built inside their ECUs. Their ECU part numbers tend to start with 038 906 021).
Most stock MAP sensors are
2.5 bar with a conservative 21 PSI boost limit. A 2.9 Bar MAP sensor can allow boost control anywhere up to 27
PSI (conservatively speaking, leaving some room for overboost logging, and it also depends on atmosphere
The stock MAP must be cut out of the ECU and then the new MAP sensor must be soldered in. ECU
tuning is also required to make the ECU read boost correctly.

These values do not reflect the pressure sensor datasheet exactly, but it is based on real-world testing using
an analog pressure gauge.
