    i live in Orlando fl.... below sea level.....i know that an OBD0 map sensor is good for 9. something psi ...does this change because of altitude....could i run more boost than if i was @4k feet above sea level with the stock map sensor

    yes, but we're talking about .1 psi -ish for your 50 feet below sea level.

    its not that drastic...

    the usdm computer has a baro sensor on it anyway and kinda balances it out a little.

    if you're hittin map cut at sealevel at say 10.0 psi, in denver i'd say you're gonna hit it at about 9.9
