so heres the run down. 2005 wrx wagon has been protuned for about 5 or 6 months now. when i first brought it to the tuners, i got a catless uppipe, cobb DP, perrin short ram intake and tune. I was only hitting about 14.2 PSI..205 whp, 200 TQ. The tuner explained i would need a new boost controller in order to acheive the targeted 18 psi. is this a normal occurrence? From talking to others, it seems the stock should be able to handle a great deal more.
Since this first tune, ive finished the cobb turbo back exhaust and i've gotten a short throw shifter installed..thats it.
Tomorrow ill post some runs to see if someone can spot an problems in my tune. Im just confused as to why im boosting so low for stage 2. car only had a little over 60k miles on it at the time- don't think the controller would be bad so quickly. im trying to avoid getting hosed for another 500+ dollars for the boost controller and tune. why is my HP so low =(
any help would be appreciated! i mostly started this thread tonight to save me some time when i post my runs tomorrow!
