Attach your chamber to the outlet. Attach gauge to chamber and see what you get?

You run into problems like surge/stall when trying to reach a higher pressure (by increasing rotation speed), with high noise and mechanical destruction.

It is a big undertaking to learn turbomachinery. It may be useful to learn how to read a compressor performance map when selecting a suitable compressor.
