I guess the blip of over boost spooked me a bit. But the lwg map was not satisfactory so I switched back. I did a few more logs and they all are similar to the one I posted.
    i ended up getting protuned after going stage 2. had the same issues w/ over boosting or under boosting. LWG, SLWG maps ect. LOL.

    just my opinion, the OTS maps aren't very good beyond stage 1.

    car looks sweet. did you insert a bolt for the rear bushing as a fix? i don't see how Subaru didn't think of that. i need to look into more bushings to stiffen mine up a bit (lot). i don't plan any suspension mods per se, but i want to stiffen up the ride a little bit.

    I did another track day yesterday at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. It's a nice 3 mile course with 2 long straights, 2 blind cresting turns, and a nice S curve. This was my 3rd track day with this car, 7th overall. My recent mods made the car more enjoyable out on the road course.

    I felt that the transmission mount and bushings felt great under hard acceleration and kept the car more balanced during shifts. The kartboy short shifter and cobb shifter bushings made shifting more direct and fun. I love, love, loved my GT Spec D-shaped wheel. Really nice grips at 9-3.

    The Stoptech SS lines and Powerslot Rotors were a great improvement over stock (with HP+ pads) and i didn't experience any fade. Last but not least, it was nice to have a little more oomph with the Invidia downpipe and stage 2 flash. I think I have a great baseline of mods now, but will only get better with upgraded dampers/springs.

    here's a vid from yesterday of me driving like a grandma in one of the day's rainy sessions.

    I really like what you've done with your car. It looks great. How do you like the track days up at thunderhill? I'll hopefully be back in the Bay Area this summer and definitely want to check those out if they're a good time.

    Is it really that bad? I am about order one and if it is, I might reconsider. How do you like it?

    it's only bad if you have really fat hands, very little patience, and/or you are doing the install outside in the rain/snow.. i did it on my car and it only took an hour.. it was a little frustrating at times (couldnt get bolts lined up a couple of times) but it was do able, and I have low mechanical skills. IMO it is a good upgrade. you can feel it when you brake even under day to day circumstances. but it isn't "World Changing"

    I will make sure I can find somewhere indoors to do it. I imagine having frozen fingers only adds to any issues lol.

    Ya lol. Just fogs to YouTube and look at the Grimmspeed install video. Make sure you have the tools they say and maybe a couple more. It is definitely a patience tester and your lower back will start getting sore drown bending over the hood for an hour lol. But it definitely isn't as bad as the whiteline differential bushing install I did.

    I have the PW TMIC and the GS AOS. Both further cramp that area a lot, making installation of the GS MCB almost impossible.

    Ah. Well it was pretty easy with a stock engine bay lol. But yes it is a very cramped area. I ended the day with plenty of scratches and cuts on my hands
