This is my first turbo car so I am still learning how everything works. First off, I have a 2010 WRX, stock with only boost gauge & short shift. I am nearing the last couple hundred miles of being done with the break-in period so I decided to take the RPMs up just a little bit past 4k.
At WOT, 2nd & 3rd gear, I only saw a boost peak of about 6psi?! The stock turbo is suppose to around 13.3psi and I am only hitting 6psi?. Keep in mind, I never went beyond 5k RPMS while doing this, so maybe load has something to do with how the turbo spools? Also, it wasn't like I was going WOT through the 1st 3 gears either, it was just gunning it in 2nd and then 3rd when I had the chance....
I just want to be sure that there is nothing wrong with my turbo. At idle, the vacuum shows 20 in/Hg so that seems to be normal.
Does driving like a grandma during break-in "teach" my ECU grandma mode or what!? Or is it because the car is still under 1k miles?
